Reconstruction of roads in full swing in U'khand, Himachal

Rehabilitation of road network in natural calamity-hit Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh is continuing by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO). As per the latest figures, the BRO has pressed into service more than 120 excavators and bulldozers in the rehabilitation works. About 30 km of road in the area has to be made afresh. Around 4,000 BRO personnel and laborers are working to complete the task on war footing.

The main focus at present is to connect the places which are still cutoff by road. Due to heavy rains in the entire region road clearance work was again hampered at many places and roads blocked due to fresh landslides and breaches. However these are being cleared quickly. Despite all odds BRO has kept open both the main axis i.e. Rishikesh - Uttarkashi and Rishikesh Joshimath - Govindghat.

A readymade foot bridge has been launched at Pandukeshwar across river Alaknanda near Govidghat on Joshimath - Badrinath axis. This has enabled the faster evacuation of stranded passengers from Badrinath.
