In a significant development, connectivity in India, with a special focus on Jammu and Kashmir, has witnessed a remarkable boost with the successful completion of the Ramban Viaduct. This extraordinary feat spans a length of 1.08 kilometers and consists of four lanes. The project, built at a cost of ₹328 crores, is situated on the Udhampur-Ramban section of National Highway-44.
The Ramban Viaduct, a structural marvel, comprises 26 spans and utilizes a combination of concrete and steel girders in its construction. Its completion signifies a significant improvement in connectivity within the Union Territory, further fostering economic development and tourism.
Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, expressed his dedication to enhancing Jammu and Kashmir’s highway infrastructure. In a recent tweet, he commended the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and underscored the project’s contribution to regional economic prosperity and the region’s appeal as a prime tourist destination.
The successful completion of the Ramban Viaduct stands as a testament to India’s commitment to infrastructure development, particularly in regions where connectivity has been a crucial factor in fostering growth and prosperity. This achievement not only enhances regional connectivity but also strengthens the bond between Jammu and Kashmir and the rest of India. As connectivity surges, so does the potential for economic development and tourism, making Jammu and Kashmir an even more attractive destination for travelers and investors alike.
