Agartala , 11 Jan, 2017 :: Governor Tathagata Roy on Wednesday inspects the miserable condition of NH44 from Lowerpoa-Churraebari. It is to be mentioned here that 10km from Lowerpoa-Churraebari is left in critical condition. During the visit, Governor stopped at many places and inspected the road. However, the maximum road is left in deplorable condition and renovation work was of very low level.
The deplorable condition of National Highway 44 – the only road connectivity that links mainland India with the eastern part of Meghalaya, Barak Valley in Assam, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura – has for a long time now remained a harrowing experience for helpless commuters.
Frequent disruption of vehicular movement, seasonal landslides and alarmingly high rates of tragic accidents that claims scores of lives, have become the order of the day, but so far none of the authorities responsible for the day-to-day upkeep of the arterial road have come to the rescue of the commuters.
The long stretch of the NH-44 from Lowerpoa-Churraebari is in its worst ever condition with vehicle breakdown all along the road becoming a daily trend, thereby causing heavy traffic jam for hours at a stretch.
