Good Samaritan NRI family repairs unsafe bridge

Will prevent accidents which could have been caused due to fog

Good news for commuters using the Dehlon-Nangal-Lehra link road, as an unsafe bridge constructed on the drain, which was earlier a death trap for commuters, was widened by an NRI family settled in the United States.

The situation used to worsen for commuters during fog due to poor visibility. The diversion of traffic on the link road following the establishment of Lehra Toll Plaza on the Ludhiana Malerkotla road made the repair or reconstruction of the drain bridge necessary.

Area residents, including Ranjit Singh and Harjit Singh, said NRIs — Kunda Singh Virk and Kiran Jit Kaur Virk — came forward to widen the unsafe and unguarded drain bridge by constructing a new portion along the old one.

The gesture is expected to prevent a number of accidents which could have been caused due to fog. The bridge was thrown open for traffic by Sant Baba Resham Singh Chakk Pakhian Wale during a simple function organised here today.

Kunda Singh Virk and Kiran Jit Kaur Virk were felicitated on the occasion.
