The Project has been assigned the task of four laning of National Highway Pathankot-Jammu and is thus the first Project of BRO to be selected to participate in the development of the North-South corridor, the ambitious plan of the Prime Minister.
The Project has rendered yeomen service in providing effective communication in militancy affected areas near the Line of Control and turbulent International Borders. Acts of militants aided and abetted from across the border and enemy shelling have failed to dampen the spirit of the daredevils of SAMPARK.
