                   Another undertaking by the Government of Nagaland is the construction of the four lane highway project between Dimapur and Kohima.The construction of the much anticipated 256 km foothill link road from Dimapur via Tuli to Tizit in Mon district has had a breakthrough with the state government receiving the support of the nine tribes which will be affected by this road link. The shortest possible road alignment on the proposed road covering five districts was tabled today at the consultative meeting of the Nagaland Foot Hill Road Construction Committee (NFHRCC) held in the residence of Yatshitsungba,Treasure Naga Foot Hill Road Construction, in Dimapur. The road head of the proposed Foothill road is likely be Niuland in Dimapur. The road will pass through Wokha, Mokokchung, Longleng and Mon districts including some areas inhabited by the Northern Sumi community.
