19 yrs on, Baramulla's Jetty bridge remains incomplete

Early Times Report

BARAMULLA, May 9: Almost two decades have passed since the JKPCC had started work on Jetty-Janbazpora bridge in this north Kashmir district, but the work is not completed yet.
Local residents of Khawajabagh told Early Times that the construction work on this vital bridge at Jetty and Janbazpora in Baramulla district is going at a snail's pace.
There are scores of areas on the other side of the river Jhelum which are eagerly waiting from past two decades for completion of the bridge as it would have cut the distance by almost 15 kilometers from the main market of Baramulla.
People from across the river are facing numerous problems as they find it difficult to use Johama-Kanispora road or Janbazpora-Baramulla road to reach to other areas of Baramulla district as both the roads remains busy due to Army convoy movement.
Ghulam Nabi Dar of Jetty area said that in 20000, the J&K Projects Construction Corporation had started work on this bridge in 2002 but the construction agency suspended the work many times in past, after spending more than Rs 2 crore. The department concerned says that only R&B can work on this vital bridge.
Johama is a nearby village of Baramulla town and most of the population remains busy in the agriculture and horticulture. "However the women folk of this area sell their vegetables in Khojabagh area and according to them the department concerned has failed to macadamize the road," said Ghulam Nabi.
He said that if the bridge is constructed here, it can cut the distance of many villages of Rafiabad area like Johamma, Ladoora, Janbazpora, Chackloo, Nadihal, Binner, and even to Kupwara, Langate and Handwara.
Another local resident said that "we have been left at the mercy of God, as Municipal Council Baramulla has made this area as garbage dump due to which it is a breeding ground for stray dogs."
If the bridge gets completed, the college students, people associated with horticulture, and labour class would heave a sigh of relief, said Ghulam Nabi, adding that Chati Padshahi (Khanpora Bridege), Azadgund Bridge, Ladoora Johama Bridge was completed in less than ten years, but this bridge is still incomplete.
The paucity of funds is blamed for the delay in completion of the bridge.
