Brahmaputra bridge will start during 11th plan
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, who handle the construction of bridge over Brahmaputra between Dhola and Sadia including its approach road, has informed that the pre-qualification of bidders for the project has been completed and implementation will commence during the 11th Plan period.
Construction of bridge over Brahmaputra between Dhola and Sadia including its approach road (28 kms) is part of the Arunachal Package approved by the Central Government.
The proposal for construction of NLKB road and bridges over Lohit-Khabolu was included in the list of 56 roads proposed by North Eastern Council to be taken up during 11th plan. However, due to large committed liabilities of North Eastern Council (NEC) and limited availability of resources, the Planning Commission has accorded ‘in principal’ approval only for 16 road projects to be taken up under Phase-I during the 11th Five Year Plan of NEC. The project for construction of NLKB road with bridges over Lohit and Khabolu has not been included in the list approved by the Planning Commission.
