    the bridge constructed by Bro and GREF at Gangauri (3 kms ahead uttarkashi on gangotri highway) was finally opened for vehicles..
    it was a big moment for peoples of Uttarkashi. the floods on 2nd night broke the bridge which snapped all road links to gangotri ahead gangauri..
    BRO and GREF swiftly and efficiently made this bridge and opened it for vehicular movements near the old broken one...
    proud of you BRO and GREF...

    selvara, the road is open only upto 15kms ahead uttarkashi till heena.. one cannot reach bhatwari as at 3 places the highway is eaten up by bhagirathi... yesterday i tried to reach bhatwari to appraise the situation but had to return from heena...
    it will still take 2-3 days more for the road to get open...
