During the monsoon flooding in September 2014, the Thalalot Bridge was washed away due to which the access to the community of villages across the river was seized. These villages include Ranjer Colony, Hill Kalan, Thalalot, Judheri, Dongi Sanoot, Hafiz Abad, Karoi with population of around 10 to 15 thousands people.
The GOAJK requested Mira Power Limited to provide its support for early construction of Thalalot Bridge. The Company agreed and started design and construction of the Bridge on higher benches (to avoid future flooding) and with wider span (the 2nd longest suspension bridge of AJ&K). Mira Power signed an agreement with GOAJK for the design and construction of bridge from its own funding.
Mira Power Limited successfully completed the bridge along with portion of link roads connected with the bridge on both side of the bridge and handed over it to GOAJK for its future operation and maintenance.
