It’s been a commendable effort by GREF and Army to get the roads connected with Ladakh. The record time taken to revamp all the bridges between Manali – Leh Highway and Srinagar – Leh Highway are worth mentioning. It has been not more than even 10 days the disaster which shook the paradise on earth, rooted off the connectivity of Ladakh from rest of the countries. Winters are nearing, food and fuel stockings are essential for the survival apart from all the reconstruction. The opening of roads has made way to silver lightening, so that more food and fuel could be delivered. Here are the stories …

Srinagar – Leh Highway Restored

The key highway linking Kashmir valley with the Ladakh region was thrown open on Friday, a week after devastating flash floods had washed away number of bridges and damaged portions of 400 km long road, at various places. The road was opened for traffic at 6 p.m today after completion of 100 feet span bridge at Nurla, constructed jointly by Army engineers and GREF, Deputy Commissioner Leh said. According to official spokesperson, the bridge was built in a record time of 48 hours. About 150 vehicles including 60 light motor vehicles rushed for Srinagar. Senior Officers of Army, GREF, SDM Khaltsi and I/C PP Khalsi were present on spot.
