A release issued by RNSOM on Monday stated that 70 per cent of the NH-37 is in good shape while the rest need special attention because of the way it was built by sub contractors.

It stated that “the reason for speedy deterioration of NH-37 is because of the way it was built. It should be built in such a way that there is no stagnant water in the road and that water runs directly to the drain.”

RNSOM inspected the NH-37 Imphal – Jiribam on Monday prior to the official inauguration of the historic Makru Bridge along NH-37 by union minister Nitin Gadkari with chief minister N Biren which was scheduled on July 8, it added.
