The 19.52 km long road has been operational for almost a year now. It is a double-lane road at 51 Kyongasala Gram Panchayat Unit.
Constructed by the Border Roads Organization (BRO), the road has now reduced the distance between Gangtok and Tsomgo lake by 15 kms.
DB Chauhan, the state BJP president, shared few pictures of the inauguration on his Twitter and said, ” Pleased to join Hon’ble @Governor_Sikkim Shri Ganga Prasad Ji during the inauguration ceremony of #Narendra #Modi #Marg at Kyongnosla GPU. The newly constructed alternative alignment road towards Changu lake has been named after Honorable PM Shri @narendramodi Ji.”
On December 20th the gram sabha passed the proposal to rename the road after PM Modi.
