Joshimath bypass work resumes after state nod

Construction of the Helang-Marwari bypass road in Uttarakhand's Joshimath has restarted after being halted due to cracks in buildings. The 5km road, part of a larger project to build roads to four Hindu shrines in the Garhwal Himalayas, aims to shorten the distance to Badrinath by 30km. Local residents have objected to the construction, citing concerns over livelihoods and potential damage to buildings. The Supreme Court recently permitted the Union government to construct all-weather roads as part of the project, citing national security concerns.
