OV Digital Desk

The Department of Defence is into the third week of the implementation phase (02-31 Oct, 2023) of the Special Campaign 3.0 along with the concomitant Swachhata Abhiyan.  As part of the best practices deployed during the ongoing Campaign , Border Roads Organization (BRO) has constructed a road using steel slag, a waste by-product of steel manufacturing. A one km long Joram-Koloriang Road in Arunachal Pradesh has been constructed using 1200 MT steel slag as part of Waste to Wealth Initiative.

Alive to the call to “Save Earth”, BRO has also taken the initiative for the development of road infrastructure using plastic waste in the high altitude area of Sanku at Ladakh,  which makes roads more durable, cost effective and environment-friendly.
