Union Minister for Road Transport & Highways Nitin Gadkari on Wednesday said that the construction of the 2-lane Jaiswal Bridge over Chenab River was completed on NH-44 in Ramban district.
In a tweet, Nitin Gadkari informed, "In Jammu and Kashmir, we have completed the construction of a 2-lane Jaiswal Bridge over River Chenab on the Udhampur-Ramban section of NH-44. This meticulously designed Balanced Cantilever bridge spans 118 meters and has been built at a cost of ₹20 Crore."
"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.
Gadkari said, "Under the visionary leadership of Hon'ble PM Narendra modi Ji, we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing Jammu and Kashmir with exceptional highway infrastructure. This transformative development not only contributes to the region's economic growth but also enhances its allure as a prime tourist destination."
