The Union Government has granted approval for a funding of Rs 1313.28 crore to facilitate the construction of a 2.5 km twin-tube uni-directional Aizawl bypass tunnel, along with a 2.1 km approach road on the Sairang – Phaibawk section of National Highway-6 in Mizoram.

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari made the announcement, emphasizing that the project, falling under Package-2 in Aizawl District, is designed to alleviate congestion in Aizawl City along NH-6.

The primary objectives of the project include creating a bypass around densely populated areas, mitigating traffic congestion, and improving overall road safety within the city.
