Dimapur | April 13

Dimapur will now have a working third bridge over the Dhansiri river. A long awaited one, the RCC T beam structure was built replacing an old British era Bailley bridge connecting the erstwhile Kohima Road with Purana Bazaar.

Constructed at a cost of over Rs 13cr spanning over 10 years, funded by the Union Ministry of Urban Affairs, the new 2-lane bridge was inaugurated today by Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio.

It has opened to traffic with the police informing that only one-way traffic will be allowed i.e. Purana Bazaar-Super Market. This is being implemented to avoid mishaps at the Purana Bazaar junction.

The CM, at the inauguration programme, termed roads as face of the state. He said, "Let us set aside our differences and work together. Anything we do, do it on time. Anything we do, do it with quality."
