Contiued from above,

To give you an idea of weight of military equipment, I think the number circled in yellow gives the weight of the equipment

A usual vanilla troop/goods carrier has maximum 12tonne max loaded weight (see the yellow circle)



Smerch weighs 40 tonnes (see the yellow circle)


Akash truck weighs 40 tonnes


Brahmos truck weighs 70 tonnes

Chardham Road project in Uttarakhand






Pithoragarh has a Military Station and an Advance Landing Strip(ALG). It is home to 69th Mountain Brigade.
Dharchula is also a military station and lies on route to Manasarovar via Lipulekh pass.

Earlier Dharchula-Lipulekh route was very crude route. Indian pilgrims used to go to Mansarovar via Nepal. But now the route has been made motorable.


Both Pithoragarh and Dharchula will play important role in defending Lipulekh Pass (a hot new dispute between India, China and Nepal).

Tanakpur is the last railway station. So all logistics will be carried there and then via road to Pithoragarh, Dharchula etc.

East of Bumla this Road network totaling 50 km was constructed post 2013.

Existing road = yellow
New Road = Green
Border = Red

The road is almost parallel to the border and at times just 1km away from border.

The construction was fast.
Not a single trace of construction in 2013-14 imagery.

The next imagery of 2015-16 is jampacked with roads, new army camps, helipads, bunkers and trench lines!!!!

So when someone says Indian infra is spooking Chinese, consider it true.

Koloriang is not a village. Its a town and district headquarter of Kurung Kumey district.
Its relatively newly found district of AP and hence the expansion is on going.
Ooh!
That solves the mystery. Thanks!
I do know that 3 4 new districts were created in Arunachal, but did not know the minute details.

10 years in making, longest bridge on Manali–Leh highway complete
Set to open for traffic this month

The longest bridge on the strategic Manali – Leh highway, located in Himachal Pradesh, is complete and will be opened for traffic this month.

While easing the flow of traffic, the new structure had greatly increased load carrying capacity.

Known as Barsi Bridge, it is the second longest bridge of its kind in the country after the Col Chewang Rinchen Setu across Shyok river on route to the world’s highest landing ground at Daulat Beg Oldie in Ladakh.

The 360-metre long bridge over the Bhaga river at Darcha took about 10 years to construct owing to the difficult terrain, inclement weather and limited working season due to long snow bound winters, BRO sources said.

It is a steel-truss structure in which the load bearing super structure is constructed of a rigid assembly of steel beams. In addition to the abutments on either end, the length is supported by five piers arising from the river bed.


Bridge is at Darcha, north of Atal Tunnel on Leh-Manali highway

Mostly like all new concrete bridges which are being built (lot of bridges in news, defence minister inaugrated many small bridges almost every month) , it will be 70 tonne capable bridge
