The Synjuk Ki Waheh Chnong War Jaiñtia has expressed concern over traffic jam along the NH 40E caused by export vehicles travelling to Bangladesh and sought intervention from the sub-divisional officer on the matter.
In a letter to the Amlarem SDO, the conglomeration of village heads of four elakas said that the Jowai-Amlarem-Dawki road is reeling under severe traffic snarls because of overtaking and failure of drivers to follow laid down traffic rules.
“We as the Synjuk we are deafened to hear various complaints from daily commuters travelling the road and instances of incidents are also reported due to traffic jam,” President of the Synjuk, Daniel Khongsit said.
While urging the SDO to address the problem the Synjuk also laid down two proposals as solutions to address traffic jam in the area. Firstly, not to allow heavy goods vehicles should be allowed to park along the entire Amlarem-Dawki road (from Amtuma Limestone quarry of Himantam Nonglamin to Nongtalang Amsohmeheleng village 1st quarry) and secondly that all stakeholders (exporters) to strictly adhere to resolutions held at various meetings of the Covid Management Committee and to penalise defaulters.
