TURA, Dec 4 - Centre for Environment Protection and Rural Development (CEPARD) has demanded the construction of parking bays on National Highway 62 for the huge number of coal trucks that line up on the side of the road leaving very little space for other commuters.
The NH 62 is vital for the transportation of coal from Nongalbibra areas in South Garo Hills (SGH) as well as South West Khasi Hills.
The NGO has sought for the creation of parking bays that could be used to ensure the trucks are not parked on the road side to cause inconvenience to commuters. – Correspondent
