BRAVO! Indian Army reconstructs bridge and restores connectivity on NH-37, Manipur’s crucial lifeline

By Zeenews

The Indian Army has completed the reconstruction of a bridge over Irang River in Tamenglong district’s Taubam village and restored the road connectivity of NH-37, the most important lifeline of Manipur. The highway connects Imphal and Jiribam and this step comes as a relief to the stranded locals.

The old bridge collapsed on November 1 which resulted in a sand-laden truck falling into the fast-flowing Irang River leading to the death of its driver. The Army completed the task in less than a month on November 27.

Manipur Chief Minister Biren Singh inaugurated the bridge and opened it for the general traffic on December 2. Speaking on the occasion, the CM commended Indian Army and NHIDCL for their efforts in execution of the task. All citizens appreciated the efforts and commitment of the Indian Army.

Indian Army’s Eastern Command tweeted, “Indian Army reconstructs Irang Bridge & restores connectivity of NH-37 connecting Imphal & Jiribam in Manipur. Hon’ble CM lauded the efforts of Indian Army.”
