Shella tourism introduced but dilapidated road pose hurdle

Published on : Saturday, October 28, 2017

Shella tourism Special Purpose Vehicle Society or SPVS supports Shella Tourism, was introduced on Friday to give an impetus to the tourism of the East Khasi Hills village. However, obstacles remain on the way to attain the goal though.
The decaying road condition to Shella, a remote village located 90 kms from Shillong, creates an obstruction to the locals who are interested to promote the place as a vacation spot.
The road from Lad Tyrna to Mawlong has got spoiled due to eroded stones, potholes which prevent tourists from exploring this place.
PS Dkhar, East Khasi Hills Deputy Commissioner while talking about the road condition, who inaugurated the scheme, informed the media people that the road requires instant renovation and “we have to look into it whether the PWD will be able to do it or we should fund from SPVS”.
Dkhar, who is the CEO of the Special Purpose Vehicle Society, explained that the first thing that people get worried about is the road condition and this is not good then visitor number starts decreasing.
The PWD might have couple of projects but the SPVS is not in a position to finance the entire road, as added by the Deputy Commissioner.
The Deputy Commissioner while explaining the road condition said that the development of roads are crucial for promotion of tourism, said, “So we have to take the vital ones at one time, one financial year we may take two-three roads phase-wise.”
