He added the newly-constructed bridge would enhance travel of local people along with the Indian Army in the strategic region.

Brig. Purvimath further mentioned all the bailey bridges are being replaced with modern ones.

The Leh-Loma road provides connectivity to several link roads along the LAC and is being developed by the specification of National Highway Double Lane (NHDL) considering the importance of it being the closest route to China border.

The Brig. said, “Such connectivity shall enhance travel and communication for strategic transport and tourism development.”
