IT IMPACT: Road construction started along Moirang -Wangoo stretch of Tiddim road

Imphal, June 4: Public Works Department, Government of Manipur has started road development work along the Moirang-Kumbi- Wangoo stretch of Tiddim road.
The ongoing road development work was witnessed during a follow-up tour at the area by representatives of Imphal Times yesterday.
Speaking to this paper, a 29-years-old resident of Kumbi Keithel said that the road blacktopping work had started few days back. Since the area is far from the capital city, the state government seems to have less attention or interest on the conditions of roads and which have not been repaired for the last 8-9 years.
But the progress of work is slow and is being carried out in a leisurely manner creating much inconvenience to the localities at large. Even if the present road development work started after a long time, people of the Kumbi Assembly Constituency are thankful to PWD for starting black topping work along the Moirang-Kumbi-Wangoo stretch of Tiddim road, said the youth. Another resident opined that the pace of work needs to be picked up as there is the danger of accidents happening due to the present ongoing work where slush and pebbles are being strewn over long stretches of the road.
It may be recalled that as part of the ongoing OUTREACH initiative of Imphal Times, a team of this daily paper toured Kumbi area on May 31 and interacted with villagers. Highlighting the pathetic condition of roads under Kumbi Assembly constituency, Imphal Times carried a news item under the headline, ‘Sitting and Ex-MLA of Kumbi Should be Responsible for Eventualities Owing to Pathetic Road Condition’ on June 1 edition.
As a possible impact of the news item, the authority had started the road construction work after Imphal Times portrayed the cries of the localities of the areas owing to bad road conditions and drew the attention of the government to look into the situation at the earliest.
