Jammu Kashmir: 2-lane Jaiswal Bridge over river Chenab completed, says Nitin Gadkari

New Delhi: The construction of a 2-lane Jaiswal Bridge over the Chenab river on the Udhampur-Ramban section of NH-44 in Jammu and Kashmir has been completed, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said on Thursday.

In a series of tweets, the Road Transport and Highways Minister said this meticulously designed balanced cantilever bridge spans 118 meters and has been built at a cost of Rs 20 Crore.

Gadkari said the establishment of this bridge serves a dual purpose.

Firstly, it will alleviate congestion along the Chanderkot to Ramban section, ensuring smoother vehicular movement.

Secondly, it will facilitate the seamless passage of vehicles and pilgrim traffic during the 'Shri Amarnath Yatra' on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway 44, which is scheduled to commence shortly.

He said this transformative development not only contributes to the region's economic growth but also enhances its allure as a prime tourist destination.
