Bunji bridge opened

GILGIT, Nov 18: Chief Minister Gilgit-Baltistan Syed Mehdi Shah inaugurated the reconstructed Bunji bridge that had been washed away by flashfloods in 2011. Public Works Department said work on the 360-foot-long bridge was initiated last year and completed at a cost of Rs18 million. The bridge connects the Bunji valley with Karakuram Highway. Speaking on the occasion, the chief minister said the government was aware of the backwardness of the area but due to lack of resources, development projects could not be launched there. He said his government would soon call a meeting to devise a strategy for the development of the area.]]>
