BRO works on war-footing to restore roads in Uttarakhand

BRO is continuing with the daunting task of  rehabilitation of road network. As per the latest figures, BRO has pressed into service more than 120  excavators and bulldozers.

The damages are so massive that about 30  km of road has to be made afresh .

‘Above 4,000 BRO personnel and labourers are working to complete the task on war footing. The main focus at present is to keep all the main axes open and connect the places which are still cutoff by road’, a BRO release  said.

‘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,’ the release further stated. ‘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 Govidgaht  on Joshimath – Badrinath axis,’ the release said.
