Kathua to get six new bridges around year end: Jitendra

JAMMU: Union Minister Jitendra Singh said the border district of Kathua will get six new bridges around the end of this year or early next year.

He said that all these bridges are nearly complete and ready to become functional in the coming months.

Singh said while the landmark Rs 150 crore Keediyan-Gandiyal Bridge is being given final touches, its formal inauguration may get somewhat delayed because of the model code of conduct.

“Kathua is set to achieve a unique distinction of getting as many as six new bridges, simultaneously, around the year end or early next year,” MP from Kathua-Udhampur-Doda Lok Sabha constituency said.  (AGENCIES)
