A bridge over a small river on the newly opened OKSRT Road was officially dedicated to the people today. OKSRT (Orang-Kalaktang-Shergaon-Rupa-Tenga) Road is an alternate road, much shorter than the old BCT (Bhalukpong- Charduar-Tawang) Road, to reach Tawang from Assam.
Dedicating the bridge to the people, Arunachal Pradesh Assembly Speaker Tenzing Norbu Thongdok said the bridge would provide all weather connectivity to West Kameng and Tawang districts. Thongdok thanked the BRO that has completed the bridge facing many odds and tough working conditions.
BRO officials were also present at the programme. The speaker urged the local people and tourists visiting Tawang to use the the OKSRT Road more than the BCT Road which is being widened now. OKSRT Road was opened earlier this month.
