A Bridge in rural Andhra

We were a group of 25 civil engineers from seven states ranging from J&K to Karanataka, associated with the PMGSY, attending a seminar / workshop at the NIRD, Hyderabad. A field visit was arranged to see construction of a bridge in village Jadcherla in Mehboobnagar district of Andhra.

The Panchayati Raj department of Andhra Pradesh is doing a marvelous job in construction of rural roads in the state under Bharat Nirman.
