Watch: BRO completes 110-feet bailey bridge in record time of 60 hours

The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) finished the construction of a 110-feet bailey bridge at Kela Morh near Ramban on the Jammu-Srinagar highway in a record time of 60 hours on Jan 16.

The bailey bridge, which would be opened for regular traffic on Saturday evening, was required as retaining wall of the existing bridge collapsed on January 11 cutting the valley from the rest of the country.

Bailey bridge is made from portable and prefabricated steel panels that can be quickly assembled.

Brigadier IK Jaggi, Chief Engineer project Beacon of BRO, who monitored the construction of the bridge said that BRO put men and machinery working day and night despite cold winter.

“We have accomplished the completion of the vital bridge in just 60 hours.

Traffic can run on it as the trial run was completed,” he added.
