ITANAGAR, March 19 - The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has inaugurated a bailey bridge in Upper Subansiri district, nearly 10 months after five personnel were killed during its construction, officials said today.
The 180-foot-long bridge over the Subansiri river on the Nacho-Tama Chung Chung Road, inaugurated on Wednesday, will facilitate troop movement to forward locations along the India-China border, they said. The bridge will also give a boost to tourism and socio-economic development of the local populace, the officials added.
Several other BRO personnel were injured in the accident that took place on May 11 last year. � PTI
