India’s infrastructure push along its farthest frontiers, a firm and focussed response to China’s thrust on developing its border areas, is set to get a boost with new roads, bridges, tunnels, airfields and helipads -- the latest in a raft of projects worth thousands of crores that have supported the military’s pursuit of robust deterrence against the neighbour with whom the country has been locked in a standoff in eastern Ladakh for more than three years, Border Roads Organisation (BRO) officials aware of the matter said on Monday.

As things stand, China has an edge over India in border infrastructure, but the country is on the fastest way to bridge the gaps, BRO officials said. (AP)
