JKIDFC to Finance Double Lane Jetty Bridge in Baramulla


Mar 11, 2021

Jammu 11 March: The Administrative Council (AC), which met here under the chairmanship of Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha, accorded approval to the construction of Jetty Bridge over river Jhelum in Baramulla at an estimated cost of
Rs. 30 crore by Jammu and Kashmir Infrastructure Development Finance Corporation (JKIDFC).

A statement issued to Kashmir News Bureau said that the JKIDFC will take over the project under languishing projects, under which it will construct a 262m, 5 span, double lane bridge over river Jehlum at Jetty Khwaja Bagh, Baramulla. The project will provide an alternate crossing over river Jehlum, by-passing the Baramulla town and will drastically reduce the intensity of traffic through the main town.

The bridge will connect a number of villages from the areas of Rafiabad, Handwara and Kupwara- the prominently food producing centres, and thus enhance economic activities in the region.
