Rattling and clattering of concrete mixture, pounding of hammers and howling of men and machine at work at a secluded forest area near India-Myanmar border in Mizoram kindle hopes of undoing a travesty of history.
The work in progress is for the construction of a bridge over a hill stream for an 87.18 km-long border road to connect Mizoram’s south-eastern district of Lawngtlai with neighbouring country Myanmar.
It entails construction of eight bridges and 428 culverts on the stretch of the road.
As of February this year, 75 percent of the work for the construction of bridges and over 90 percent road-laying work were completed.
