Kolkata: The Indian Army in coordination with the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) and the Arunachal government has constructed a 120-feet-long bridge over Tha Nala near Mithumna, around 24km from Chaglohagam in Anjaw district.

Chagalam is one of the extreme remote areas along the border.

Officials said connectivity to Chaglohagam is through a 57 km single arterial road from Hayuliang, which often remains shut due to seasonal nullahs and landslides at Tha Nala.

The local Mishmi population and village elders thanked the Indian Army and the BRO for fulfilling the critical needs of people and enabling road connectivity throughout the year between Hayuliang and Chagalam.
