In addition to the already on-going projects worth ₹1,000 crore, the Border Road Organization has decided to build road infrastructure projects of ₹1,400 crore in Arunachal Pradesh during the current fiscal. The targeted investment is a part of the total ₹20,000 crore allocated for the region. Forest clearance for roads worth at least ₹2,500 crore is still pending with the state government.
While the single-lane Elephant Road has been completed, the work for Sessa Road is pending over forest clearance. The alignment of Dirang Bypass, part of BCT Road, is ready and the project is likely to be awarded to contractors very shortly. About 90 per cent works of Siyom Valley Road in West Siang district are complete, except for small patches. Completion of these roads will ensure reverse migration in border villagers of the state. Around 2,000-km-long roads have been conceived as an axis road along the India-China border.
