PULWAMA — Even after a lapse of four years, a vital bridge in Dogam area of Kakapora block in Pulwama district is awaiting completion.
The residents of the area said that work on the bridge was started around four years ago but has not been completed fully as of now, causing inconvenience to people. They said completion of the bridge will connect dozens of villages with each other and help them to reach Awantipora, Srinagar and Pulwama in less time.
“Around 90 percent of the work on the bridge has been already completed but pending work isn’t being done due to unknown reasons,” a local, Sameer Ahmad, told the news agency KNO.
He added, “Our school-going children had to take longer routes to reach schools due to the incomplete bridge. With the completion of the bridge, they will reach school within minutes only.”
They requested higher-ups, especially DC Pulwama, to look into the matter and complete the work at the earliest.
An official said that the bridge is almost complete and only minor work is pending. He said that the bridge will be thrown open to the public very shortly.
