These bridges have been built at the cost of around Rs 43 crores, the officials further said.

“It is a pleasant experience to inaugurate these bridges at the time when the world is insisting on maintaining distancing and is living apart from each other. I would like to congratulate the Border Roads Organisation on completing this task with their great skills,” said the Union Minister after the inauguration held through video conferencing.

“Since its formation, BRO has always been at the forefront of developing infrastructure in far-flung areas. It has also completed the construction of 160 meters long Tarnah I and 300-meter long Tarnah II bridges, fulfilling the aspiration of the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” Singh added.

“I congratulate all the countrymen, including the local people and dedicate these bridges to all of you,” he said in his concluding remarks.
