BRO completes 2 bridges near China border in Uttarakhand

The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has built two more bridges on the Tanakpur-Tawaghat road, close to the India-China border in Uttarakhand, to facilitate transportation to frontier outposts.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh was to inaugurate the projects on December 27 but had to put it off because of prior engagements. The new bridges will now be inaugurated by the defence minister virtually on January 3, said Jainendra Kumar, Director (Works) of the Hirak project that constructed the bridges, said.

The first bridge, a steel-structure of 80 metres span, has been constructed on Dhauli River on the Tawaghat Ghatiabagar road in place of an old bridge that was swept away in the 2013 disaster, he said.

“The bridge, which has been named Dhauli Ganga Bridge, will help making transportation to security posts at India-China border smooth. It will also be of great convenience to villagers of all seven villages of Vyas valley as well as pilgrims to Adi Kailash, tourists and trekkers,” Kumar said.

The other bridge is a 30-metre concrete structure built at Gumrodi in Kimkhola village near Jauljibi. “It will make transportation from Jauljibi to Tawaghat very smooth,” said the BRO officer.
