What did the satellite picture reveal
The Twitter handle @detresfa_, which analyzed the satellite imagery, claimed that the road is being built on the southern bank of Pangong. One end of it is seen approaching a bridge seen in January this year. It has been told in the tweet that this bridge is most likely to be connected to Rutong County of China. This will help China’s PLA troops to reach this area faster.

China has built a bridge
The construction of a bridge over Pangong Lake was revealed in early January this year. This bridge has been built on the Pangong Lake in the area occupied by China. It is being told that this bridge connects the northern bank of the lake with the southern bank which is 20 km east of Finger 8. People with information about this have told that China is building a bridge on its side near the Galvan Valley area.

China is rapidly building bridges and roads in the border areas
After the military skirmish in Galwan on June 15, 2020, China has rapidly built up infrastructure in the border area. Not only this, China has built many bridges and roads to bear the weight of tanks in this entire area. China has also set up many state-of-the-art shelters for its soldiers to stay in the harsh weather of the border areas. Despite this, Chinese soldiers are falling ill due to the harsh weather in the region.
