Under the Centre’s Bharatmala project, the famed Shillong bypass starting from Umiam-Mawryngkneng is set to be widened to a four-lane road.
The central government also has plans to build bypasses in other important cities of the country under the same project.
So far, 28 ring roads, 125 choke points and 66 congestion points under Phase-1 of the Bharatmala Pariyojana have been identified as places where interventions have been planned. These include a few in Shillong, Dibrugarh, Guwahati, Silchar, Dimapur, Aizawl and Imphal.
A budget outlay has already been earmarked for the first phase of the project and is set to be at around Rs 5,35,000 crore.
