India Gets Ready For China as BRO To Finish All Road Projects Along India-China Border By 2022



Indian BRO will complete all the road projects along the India-China border within a stipulated time of three years. The road projects along India-China border also consist of an important tunnel called the Sela Pass in Arunachal Pradesh being developed by Border Road Organization (BRO)

Harsil, Uttrakhand: PM Modi To Celebrate Near India-China Border

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the tunnel, the Sela Pass which will reduce travel time to Tawang. The Chief Lieutenant General Harpal Singh of Border Roads Organisation (BRO) said that the construction of all 61 roads assigned to BRO will be achieved by December 2022. These roads will fall near to China, Arunachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Sikkim, Uttarakhand, and Himachal Pradesh. The total length of these roads is 3,417 km, out of which 2,350 Km is completed.

The Chief Lieutenant General Harpal Singh emphasised saying, “We have redeployed our task forces and moved the bulk of them from the hinterland to the northern borders to construct strategic roads within three years. Of BRO’s 32,000-strong workforce, 67% is now deployed along the Chinese border.”

The Indian government announced the construction of the Sela Pass tunnel as part of the  Balipara-Charduar-Tawang road which is an important project to enhance border connectivity for the Indian Army. This tunnel will minimize travelling hours by approximately two hours.

The roads which are left for construction include a 35 Km stretch road that is linked to Doklam where Indian and Chinese soldiers were deployed and faced tensions. Border Road Organisation’s Harpal Singh said that the road will be finished by March 2019. The Darbuk-Shyok-Daulat Beg Oldie road measuring 250 Km in Ladakh will be built by next year.

“Projects are being monitored by the highest levels of the government. We are on course to be on a par with China on the infrastructure front,” Singh added.

Indian Cabinet Committee on security will revise the detailed reports for these roads being constructed for Indian Army’s easy access to India-China border.

The Lieutenant General SL Narasimhan (retd) who is part of National Security Advisory Board said: “Infrastructure development along the northern borders is improving. Renewed efforts are being made to complete projects on time. Things have been delayed but are gathering pace now.”
