Indigenously designed short span bridge handed over to Army by L&T

In another example of indigenisation of defence equipment, a five-metre short span bridge was formally handed over to the Indian Army at the Talegaon facility of infrastructure and engineering major Larsen & Toubro (L&T).
The bridge has indigenously designed and developed and is the result of close coordination between the Corps of Engineers and the Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO) laboratory at Pune R&DE (Engineers), an official press release said.
The equipment has been manufactured by L&T and has been delivered three months ahead of schedule, it said.
"All stakeholders have put in concerted efforts to overcome challenges and realise the ‘Make in India’ initiative of the government, which aims to ensure self sufficiency in our defence needs," the release said.
"The bridge will meet the important requirement of providing mobility to own forces by speedy establishment of bridges. The bridge is one of the numerous indigenous projects of Corps of Engineers which have made significant progress and are nearing induction and will soon join the units of Corps of Engineers," the release added.
