Local people in Thantlang township are disappointed with the construction of the road between Thantlang and Lunglei by Alpha-Omeca company as the road is not 24 feet wide and it cannot be completed in time.
The Hakha post said that although the Union of Myanmar government had announced that the road has to be 24 feet wide and 34 feet wide on the corners and is to be completed by March 2014, the road is only 20 feet wide, 24 feet in the corners.
“There is no drain on the sides on the road and all the side cover will be gone when the rains come,” said a local. However, Alpha-Omega Company said that they have no responsibility to construct side drains on the road side.
Meanwhile, Alpha – Omega Company has assumed contract for laying water pipe connections worth Ks. 150 lakhs for Hmunhal village in Thantlang township, but no work has started till date.
