The project is expected to be executed in multiple phases, ensuring minimal disruption to existing traffic while expediting the construction process. The government has assured that the highest standards of quality and safety will be maintained throughout the project's execution. Local authorities and stakeholders are anticipated to collaborate closely to ensure the project's timely and successful completion.

Overall, the Umiam-Silchar four-lane road project marks a significant milestone in the northeastern region's infrastructure development. It is poised to transform the connectivity landscape, driving economic growth and enhancing the quality of life for the residents of Meghalaya and Assam.
