UAE president donates steel boats bridge to Rojhan



LAHORE: Population of Rojhan was facing huge difficulties while going to Rahim Yar Khan as the people hailing from the under-developed area had to go to Guddu Barrage to cross River Indus for their day to day business.

This situation used to get worsen during the emergencies like evacuation of serious patients. Keeping their difficulties in view and to facilitate their movements, the President of United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Ruler of Abu Dhabi H.H. Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan very graciously donated a steel boats bridge to the people of Rojhan which is installed near Bangla Ichha during winters when the water level of river decreases.

It will reduce the distance of approximately 135 KM from Rojhan to Rahim Yar Khan by half, thus making it 75 KM only.

In order to permanently resolve the issue of crossing of River Indus throughout the years, H.H. Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan has also very kindly donated a permanent bridge at Kachha Choan which is 15 KM upstream of present steel boats bridge at Bangla Ichha.
