According to DIPR, the meeting was held with special focus on Dimapur-Kohima 4-lane, NH-29 and discussion on necessary measures on how to mitigate if any incident occurs. During the meeting, the officials suggested forming a committee under District Disaster Management where all the members of NHIDCL as well as concerned contractors involved in the project would be included to mitigate information immediately during crucial times. Other issues discussed were mapping those areas which needed more attention so that first hand manpower can be placed accordingly on those areas. Various departments have also been directed to submit mitigation plans in case any incident takes place during the 10-day Hornbill Festival.
