Govt reveals 27 road and bridge development projects by BRO

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh revealed the development of border infrastructure as part of efforts to promote India's preparedness to confront any security challenge.

After revealing 27 roads and bridges projects executed by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO), he said that India would not have been able to reply to the adversary in the northern sector if there was no infrastructure in the area.

The 24 roads inaugurated at a virtual ceremony incorporated one constructed at an altitude of over 19,000 feet on the Umling-La pass in southern Ladakh, Singh said, adding it has now become the world's highest motorable road. The situation they encountered in the northern sector recently, and how they were able to reply strongly to the adversary, would not have been possible without proper infrastructure development, Singh said in a reference to the eastern Ladakh row.

The defence minister regretted that adequate attention was not given to creating border infrastructure after Independence but claimed that there was a significant change in the approach in the past few years.

The defence minister told the media that the roads in border areas are not just for strategic requirements, but they also guarantee equal participation of remote regions in the advancement of the country.

In this way, these bridges, roads and tunnels play a vital role in security, and in empowering the entire country. The defence ministers said that there was a need to bolster India's surveillance system the way the nation is improving its border infrastructure.
