Kunzar-Chanpora bridge nears completion

Residents heave sigh of relief

Tangmarg: After years of inordinate delay, authorities have nearly completed main portion of the Kunzar-Chanpora bridge and opened it for pedestrian movement.
 The construction of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) funded bridge has witnessed a roller coaster ride in past seven years causing immense problem to people here.
 After massive public outcry, the Economic Reconstruction Agency (ERA) entrusted with construction of the bridge recently laid main slab. Though some minor works including construction of paths and stairs is yet to be completed, the bridge has been opened for pedestrian movement.
 Expecting delay in completion of minor works, the locals for their convenience have themselves constructed makeshift stairs on both sides of the bridge. The locals have urged the Director Economic Reconstruction Agency (ERA) to fulfill his promise of completing construction of the bridge by the end of this month.
 Pertinently, over the years, scores of men and women have sustained injuries and fractures while crossing a makeshift bridge over Ferozpora stream.
 Greater Kashmir over the years has carried a series of stories on inordinate delay in completion of the bridge. With completion of this bridge, the southern villages of Tangmarg will get connected to with Kunzar on the Srinagar- Gulmarg highway—the hub of commercial activities here.
