The road stretch from Yairipok Laimanai Thongkhong to Ngariyan road has been shut down indefinitely alleging the condition of the road has been deplorable and neglected far too long, a press release by Laimanai Youth Club Yairipok said.
The statement said “ The Laimanai Youth Club Yairipok earlier had set a deadline on August 10 to look into the issue of the poor condition of the said road by the concerned authority, failing which they had threaten to closed down the road from Yairipok Laimanai Thongkhong to Ngariyan Road”. Unfortunately, concerned authority has turn a blind eye to the appeal and they had to take this step of closing down the road indefinitely”, said Th. Ito President of LYCY.
