The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has completed the construction of a key bridge in Arunachal Pradesh that will allow speedier movement of people and logistics material towards the Line of Actual Control (LAC) with China.
The bridge over the Daporijo river in Arunchal Pradesh was constructed in less than a month while adhering to safety norms. It was inaugurated by Chief Minister Pema Khandu via video conferencing link on 20 April 2020. The bridge is a strategic link towards LAC between India and China.
All supplies, rations, construction material and medicines pass over this bridge. The new bridge can withstand 40 tonne of weight allowing a safe passage for heavier vehicles catering not only for requirements of the Indian Army but also future infrastructure development requirements of Upper Subansiri district.
