The development on the road connecting Nubra Valley & DBO area has been accelerated by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO). This follows claims that China was constructing a second bridge across the Pangong Tso in eastern Ladakh. The new route will give Indian soldiers another option for reaching the Depsang plains and moving to the Chinese front.
According to government authorities, the route will connect the two valleys by passing across Ladakh’s Saser Pass. Because it is the working season, the work has picked up speed, and construction activity in the neighborhood has grown. Meanwhile, several joint exercises are being held all along the LAC by Indian security forces, including the army and the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP).
The Indian Army has relocated five of its divisions from the Ladakh region to Arunachal Pradesh following Chinese action in 2020 to compel a unilateral change in the status quo. It also redirected its attention away from Pakistan and toward China. The army has also substantially renovated the road infrastructure. The road network along the Khardung La pass has also been improved, making it easier to get from Leh to the China border.
