UKHRUL, July 2: The people of Ukhrul town showed signs of joy when the road development works of the town were transferred to General Road Engineering Force (GREF) from the state public works department.
The PWD has failed to develop the roads of Ukhrul town for quite a long time thereby causing much inconvenience to the people.
After taking over the responsibility of developing the roads of Ukhrul town, the GREF could show good progress in the work.
The present condition of the dilapidated road has caused immense hardship and inconvenience to the people of all walks of life. The remains of the dug-out earth piled up on either side of the made it difficult for people to walk on the road especially during monsoon season.
The vehicles of all types plying on this one-way-traffic road always get jammed because of the slippery mud and narrow passage.
However, the GREF has been working to improve the condition of this deplorable road by using all its manpower and machineries. The people of Ukhrul town are indeed happy with the work progress of the GREF and they hope that their woes for having bad roads will soon be over.
