We have all came across the road safety signs saying that “overtaking prohibited”, “violators will be prosecuted”, “speed limits” and many other serious notes. But it’s not the same when you are traveling along the Leh-Manali highway. In fact, you will receive a cautious welcome by BRO through their road safety sign depicted in a humorous one-liner. Which makes the entire route more fun by bringing a smile to all in this strenuous journey across the secluded terrains.
The Leh–Manali Highway was designed, built and is maintained entirely by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) which works under Ministery of Defence. Border Roads Organisation (BRO) develops and maintains the road network’s in India’s border areas and our neighboring countries like Afghanistan, Bhutan, Myanmar, and Srilanka. They handle 18 projects in which project Himank is responsible for the construction and maintenance of roads and related infrastructure of the Ladakh district including the world’s highest motorable roads across the Khardung La, Tanglang La, and Chang La passes. They are worth accolades not only for their efforts and achievements in the projects but also for the witty signboards that make the Leh Ladakh journey more awesome and brings a smile to all the travelers. Here is the list of road safety signs that can be seen in Leh-Manali highway.
