Uttarakhand bridge along China border collapses
DEHRADUN: An iron bailey bridge over the Dhauli Ganga river in Chamoli, Uttarakhand, connecting Niti Valley on the India-China border with the rest of the state, collapsed on Sunday while a truck was passing through it.
The truck driver managed to save himself by jum into the river before the bridge gave away.The incident occurred around 4.30 pm at Burans near Malari.
Soon after the incident, the Border Roads Organisation (BRO), responsible for upkeep of roads and bridges in the area, dispatched a team to the site and commenced reconstruction of the bridge.
“BRO is working on a temporary bridge to resume traffic movement as soon as possible,” said Lt Col Manish Srivastava, PRO, Defence (Dehradun). SDM of the area, Kumkum Joshi, told TOI that “Currently, there are no residents in the area and only Army movement takes place through the bridge.”
Meanwhile, Colonel Ankur Mahajan of BRO said, “Vehicles have been diverted to an alternate route and construction of a causeway over Dhauli Ganga is underway, with completion expected by Tuesday.”
BRO的Ankur Mahajan上校表示，“車輛已改道，Dhauli Ganga上方的堤道正在施工中，預計將于周二完工。”
This bridge was built during Congress era - It is a old style of construction...
No wonder the Chinese are not worried. They know Modi is all talk. All made in India is junk so far. Only thing that has increased is scams, corruption in municipal offices, courts and police stations. Politicians are at the very top. Absolutely corrupt with no morals or ethics. Build some more temples and statues. That at least may last.
Yeah, Modi personally built those structures with his own two hands. LOL
But Modi claimed credits for everything that hasn't crashed yet.
This bridge was built by Congress government....
Corrupt contractors with the corrupt politicians and the corrupt bureaucrats will rebuild the bridge!
Corrupt contractors under Scumgress era.
This is a conspiracy by Nehruji to defame the Modi durbar.
You bet...It is a old bridge...
Mirloo, well said. Only BJP netas held it up with their hands since 2014 for benefit of common man.
Congress built bridge
You are correct. In fact it was built during Congress regime...
Modi saar built the excellent Morbi ropeway.
Bridges are collapsing because no one take care for their upbeat ,corruprtion ,slee of concerned authorties.Those responsible should be fired so as higher authorties.
It is not for nothing that we let the Chinese carry out the construction work on Indian side !!
The effect of 40% impacts Arunachal too !!
This is not Arunachal...Uttarkhan...Just shows how bigoted you are...
India should focus on the quality as well. Hope all the wrong things will be corrected.
Leaves one to wonder about the quality of the engineering and construction of all other such structures built by BRO???
Built under Scumgress regime...
Corruption may be . Or, shoddy engineering. Either way shameful and sad.

A former Governor spoke a few words to a TV Journalist two days ago and suddenly, the Government went off its aggressive stance. No speeches have been made about Corrupt Congress in two consecutive days, which is an unprecedented happening.
