Itanagar, February 12: With the aim to connect inaccessible areas of Arunachal Pradesh, the Border Roads Organisation is undertaking massive construction of roads and bridges in such areas of the state. In this process to help in developing the inaccessible areas, the Indian Air Force is helping the BRO in Arunachal Pradesh.


Indian Air Force helicopters have airlifted more than 80 tonne materials for construction
of a vital bridge over Kumney river in Kurung Kumey district of Arunachal Pradesh bordering China, Defence sources said on Tuesday.

IAF MI-17 helicopters airlifted the materials on Monday, Shillong-based IAF PRO Wing Commander Ratnakar Singh said. The bridge which is being executed by the Border Roads
Organisation, would connect the settlements of Huri outpost with Damin circle of the district bordering China.

Owing to its strategic importance, the bridge would play a crucial role in easing out inconvenience caused to local people and troops deployed in this remote part of the
state. The IAF is assisting the BRO in carrying the load to expedite the process.

The state of Arunachal Pradesh has set up an example by transforming and developing itself as a state of high potential. Off lately, the residents of 11 villages came together to help IAF in creating the roadway.
