Parnaik expressed deep concern over the inconvenience caused to common people due to regular traffic jams and potholes on city roads, a Raj Bhavan communiqué said.

He said internal roads should be quickly repaired, vehicles parked on the roadside removed and bypasses and diversions created at choke-points.

The Governor urged the state department of urban development to plan adequate parking areas along roads to decongest traffic.

He advocated for the removal of encroachments and waste disposal along the trans Arunachal highway from Hollongi Airport to the capital city and beyond.
