New activity shows a larger bridge being developed parallel to the first in order to support heavier movement over the lake. 

China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is constructing a huge bridge over the Pangong Tso Lake. This will be the second bridge on the Pangong Tso on the Chinese side, which will be used to transport heavy military vehicles like tanks, armored vehicles very close to the Indian border. China is building this second bridge at a time when the standoff in Ladakh has entered its third year. The first bridge being built by China is now complete.

According to a report in The Print, the first bridge will be used as a service bridge for the construction of the second. The report quoted defense sources as saying that China is using the first bridge to install its cranes and bring other construction materials. The new bridge is right next to the bridge built earlier. This new bridge is much bigger and wider than before. The source said that China’s construction of the new bridge has been seen three weeks ago.
