"The cold desert region will now be accessible by a double-lane motorable road from Manali in Himachal Pradesh via Zanskar in Kargil district," a spokesman of the BRO said, as per a PTI report.

The road will also be a strategic advantage in the Kargil region which saw transgression from the Pakistani side in 1999. The new route, which will enhance inter-state connectivity and bring socio-economic benefits for the region, was constructed by cutting through tough mountains under the Project Vijayak of BRO, the spokesman said.

"This will be the third road to Ladakh region after Srinagar-Leh and Manali via Leh routes," he added.
