Amarnath yatris to experience improved tracks this year: DG BRO

Wednesday, 15 May 2024 | Pioneer News Service | Jammu

Director General of Border Roads Organisation (BRO) Lt Gen Raghu Srinivasan Tuesday said the pilgrims planning to visit Amarnath cave shrine would experience “improved tracks” this year.

The 52-day pilgrimage to the 3,880-metre-high cave shrine in south Kashmir will commence on June 29.

“I am back from the Baltal (base camp). Last year, we were assigned the task of widening the track which was important for the safety of the devotees. We have completed the widening work and also covered the surface with blocks and attended curves and slopes,” the DG BRO told reporters on the sidelines of a tunnel breakthrough function in Rajouri.

He said the BRO has also completed the most important work of laying roadside railing and sidewalls at vulnerable locations, especially in the areas prone to shooting stones from the hillocks to keep the pilgrims safe.
