Nitin Gadkari dedicates to nation Kerrian Gandyal Bridge in Kathua

Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways  Nitin Gadkari on January 22, 2019 dedicated to the nation Kerrian Gandyal bridge in Kathua district of Jammu.  

The bridge has been constructed over river Ravi in Kathua district in a record time of over  three years.   

The 1.2 km long span-bridge over the river Ravi has been constructed at a cost of rupees 158.84 crore and will improve inter-state connectivity.

This project will benefit over 2,20,000 people living on the two sides – Kathua in Jammu, and Pathankot in Punjab. 

This will reduce the distance between the two cities from 45 kms to 8.6 kms, which will save on both time and fuel cost.

The National Highway (NH) network in Jammu and Kashmir has seen an increase of 969 kms in the last four years. The total length of National Highways in the State was 1695 kms in 2014, which has gone up to 2664 kms in 2018.
