Work on five road projects with a total length of 255 km in Ladakh has started, which will give better access to the Line of Actual Control (LAC). These five road projects will be a boost for both the military and civil population. The Hanuthang-Handanbroke-Zungpal-Turtuk road construction of 26.6 km length will improve connectivity to the Shyok Valley. In Shyok, the Chinese have objected to Indian infrastructure in the past, which was a reason that led to the standoff that began last May. Across the Stakpuchan range, inter-valley connectivity between Hanuthang-Handanbroke and Zungpal-Turtuk would be better post this project.
