Renovation of Phek-Chozuba 45 kms road nears completion

Phek | March 9 : To have the stretch of 45 kms road from Phek to Chozuba via Thuvopisu road, renovated, has been a wish for so long for commuters from Phek to Kohima. The renovation would mean easing the duration of traveling to a great extend that lays unattended for more than five decades. Despite several assurances to enhance the road connectivity of the said lane by elected legislators from 19th Phek A/C, it turned out to be empty promises and indeed leaves the commuters, especially the people of the area to a state of frustration. 
The present Health & Family Welfare Minister Azo Nienu who was elected under 19th A/C for two consecutive terms came to the rescue of the commuters, relieving the long pending tensions of the people by renovating the road, where currently the work is on progress enabling vehicles to ply on the road. The ongoing renovation of the 45 kms long road which started way back in 2009 is reported to have completed half of its length starting from the side of Chozuba.
During an interaction with The Morung Express, Health minister said, “Being brought up from the district head quarter town, knowing the longing of the people since my schooling days, renovation and enhancement of the road always stay as my priority”. Inspecting the ongoing work for the fourth time, Nienu on March 8 last accompanied by leaders of political parties, NGOs etc visited the 45 kms stretch length of road and interacted with the laborers and supervisors, directing them to carry out standard workmanship under whatsoever circumstances.
Expressing his confidence for the completion of the work with quality workmanship, the Minister said, ‘the road indeed bears bright prospect-the availability of high class stone for the entire stretch of road length, the very strong foundation of the road is highly viable’ adding that once the road become stable for the vehicle to ply on, it would save time, energy and money of the commuters enabling the economy of the district to stand with more stability. He said the entire community of the district including its neighboring district-Zunheboto will benefit a lot after the road is properly commissioned.
Earlier, the Minister along with the leaders of the Town, also inspected the colony footpaths where he assured to construct footpath for Bethany-I colony of Phek town under some scheme by this year, adding that he would try his best to do the same before the rainy season begins.
