Srinagar, Feb 12: The National Highway Authorities of India (NHAI) Friday said that the Bailey Bridge set up at Kela Morh in Ramban district has been de-launched as the damaged portion of the highway stands repaired fully and that the traffic will ply normally on the highway from Saturday onwards.

Project Director NHAI Purshotam Kumar, while speaking to the news agency said, ” The retaining wall of the bridge which had collapsed on January 9 is all set to be thrown open for traffic as the same stands repaired fully. The Bailey bridge which was launched as an alternate arrangement is being de-launched now.”

ADGP Traffic P Namgyal said that after the collapse of retaining wall of the bridge at Kela Morh in district Ramban, as interim relief for restoring the connectivity to Kashmir, Bailey Bridge was launched on the highway by the NHAI in coordination with BRO.
