Jammu: Alternate route open for vehicular movement

Aman Zutshi

After two months the alternate route  on Jammu-Pathankot National highway which was being constructed adjacent to Tarnah bridge following its damage recently in flash floods causing great sufferings to local inhabitants  have been opened for movement for light motor vehicles on Wednesday.

The alternate route has been built by National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) after hard efforts as the heavy rains has washed the route so many times during its construction. However, the NHAI has confirmed that the route will also be open for big vehicles in the coming days.

The NHAI has also stated that the Tarnah bridge would take 5-6 months to get back its earlier shape.

A  technical team of National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) last month also inspected the Tarnah bridge along with DC Kathua, ex-representatives and locals, which was washed away in recent flash floods.
