Director General Border Roads (DGBR) Lieutenant General Harpal Singh on Wednesday reviewed the progress of works of operationally critical roads under 'Project Arunank'.

The DGBR carried out the inspection of Road TCC-Taksing and TCC-Bidak. 

The DGBR travelled by road from Taksing to Gelensiniak-Bidak and arrived at Limeking. En route, he inspected the ongoing road construction and took stock of plan of bailey bridges on various nallahs and rivers for fair-weather connectivity to Taksing and Bidak. 

"He was convinced about the difficulty of terrain, unpredictable weather and the constraints of local resources in the region which posed a huge challenge to Border Roads Organisation (BRO) in timely completion of the roads," an official release said. 

The DG met the BRO personnel and Casual Paid Labourers (CPLs) at various work sites, complimented and exhorted them to keep pushing forward so that connectivity on these roads could be established.

He also carried out the inspection of Hapoli-Sarli-Huri road and expressed satisfaction at the pace of progress. 

He called on the Governor and Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh and apprised them of the status of road works in the state. -IANS
