Mandi, September 13
The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) today opened the 160-ft long Koksar Bailey bridge to traffic after 10 days, bringing respite to stranded tourists and growers from Lahaul valley who use the Manali-Leh national highway for bringing ration and other things.

Inputs from Koksar revealed that the BRO opened the highway at 5 o’ clock first for light vehicles, and trucks will follow tonight or in the morning. Over 1000 small and big vehicles were stranded on the highway on both sides of the Koksar bridge and in Keylong in the land-locked Lahaul valley since September 4, when two overloaded trucks which crossed simultaneously and damaged the bridge.
