Enhanced operational preparedness along the borders and the need to be self-reliant are two major aspects that have seen a substantial impetus over the last few years. The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has been a key contributor to the infrastructure development drive as well as the aspect of self-reliance through its execution of various works. The 140 feet modular double lane bridge being discussed has brought forth a new dimension of self-reliance wherein the BRO has integrated with an Indian manufacturer to launch the first ever indigenously developed Double Lane Modular Bridge at an altitude of 11,000 feet.
A key focus area identified in strengthening the defence preparedness along the borders has been that of rapid infrastructure development to address the existing infrastructure voids. This has resulted in enhanced impetus through demonstration of intent, resource allocation, and setting strict timelines to address this operationally critical requirement.
