Manali-Leh : Trial run , 2000

A trial run of an Army convoy on the Manali-Leh road will be held tomorrow to reopen the road on May 31.

This was disclosed by Brig B.M. Bakshi, Chief Engineer of the Deepak project of the BRO, here today.

Despite a heavy snowfall during the winter, the BRO had been able to clear the road in a record time to enable army convoys to carry supplies to Kargil, Siachen and Leh.

Brigadier Bakshi said personnel working on the Deepak project had cleared snow up to Sarchu by April 26 despite a heavy snowfall.

He said buses had been plying between Lahaul-Spiti and Manali since May 8 following the clearing of the snow at the Rohtang Pass.
