Repairs to roads, bridges is on in flood-hit Uttarakhand

Border Roads Organisation (BRO) is carrying out repair of roads in flashflood-affected Uttarakhand and is also launching temporary bridges/foot bridges, said the Union Defence Minister AK Antony recently. BRO has already restored 16.950 Km length of road to establish connectivity.

BRO has also launched 3 foot bridges: One at Lambagarh on Joshimath-Badrinath road, one at Sonprayag on Rudraprayag Gaurikund road and one on Govindghat Hemkund Sahib road to help evacuate stranded pilgrims and mules.

Restoration of connectivity for rest of the stretches is targeted by October 2013, Antony said.
