Itanagar: The Union Road Transport &
National Highways ministry has approved the 407 km
Putin-Pangin road which passes through three districts of
Arunachal Pradesh.

The road, part of the ambitious Trans-Arunachal
Highway (TAH), which will touch Ziro, Daporijo and Aalo was
approved by Union Road Transport & National Highways Minister
C P Joshi yesterday, Lok Sabha member from Arunachal Takam
Sanjoy said in a statement today.

The Neichipu-Hoj road via Seppa and Sagalee, part of
the TAH announced by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in 2006,
was sanctioned six months ago.

The foundation stones of both the major roads would
be laid by Joshi and Chief Minister Nabam Tuki in the first
week of February next for which both have given consent,
Sanjoy said, adding he would also be attending the functions.

The Hyderabad-based ECI Engineering & Constructions
Pvt Ltd would execute the projects.

Meanwhile, the MP appealed to the leaders and public
to co-operate in expeditious execution of the roads which
would boost the economy of the state.
