BRO starts Rorathang-Rangpo road repair

RANGPO: The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has started restoration of the damaged stretch of Rorathang-Rangpo road at 4th Mile Bhasmey.
The initiative comes after the Rangpo SDM Himmat Rai inspected the damages and submitted his report to the East District Magistrate Raj Yadav. Yadav in an order issued on Wednesday had directed the BRO to take steps to restore connectivity while also prohibiting movement of heavy vehicles and loaded trucks.
The damage to the road has been causing hardship to motorists and commuters. Earlier, the members of taxi drivers associations from Rangpo, Pakyong, Rhenock and Rongli had submitted a memorandum to the Rangpo SDM requesting for a solution to the persisting problem.
