In a remarkable development for the breathtaking landscapes of Arunachal Pradesh, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Shri Nitin Gadkari, has unveiled a visionary plan that promises to transform the state’s connectivity. Under the dynamic Setu Bandhan Scheme, Shri Gadkari has given the green light to seven extraordinary bridge projects, with a combined investment of a whopping Rs 118.50 Crores, slated for execution in the fiscal year 2023-24.
These bridge projects are not just about steel and concrete; they represent a bridge to a brighter future for the people of Arunachal Pradesh.
Each of these structures tells a unique story of connectivity, promise, and prosperity:
