Heavy road-building machinery has been brought into Uttarakhand’s Johar Valley through helicopters to expedite construction of the Munsiyari-Bugdiyar-Milam road near the India-China border.

The Border Roads Organisation (BRO), after several failed attempts in 2019, recently succeeded in carrying heavy road-building equipment by helicopters to Laspa, raising hopes of the road’s faster completion.

The construction of the 65-kilometre road has been delayed due to the absence of heavy stone cutting equipment at Laspa near the alignment site.

The Munsiyari-Bogdiyar- Milam road will be a link to the last posts on the Indo-China border once it is completed.

The road is being constructed in the high Himalayan region of Johar Valley in the Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand.
