After four months, the Yamuna river bridge, connecting Haryana and Uttar Pradesh was ultimately opened for traffic on February, 4. The bridge situated near Kalanaur village in Yamunanagar district at NH-73 had been closed in October, 2010 to undertake repair work after major cracks were found in two pier caps of the bridge. The National Highway Authority (NHA), Uttar Pradesh, under whose jurisdiction this bridge falls, got the repair work conducted from Uttar Pradesh Bridge Corporation.
The reopening of the bridge is a major relief for the Yamuna Nagar Plywood industry. The farmers from UP side will be able to supply their poplar and eucalyptus timber to the industry which will help the industry to come out the problem of the scarcity of raw materials.
It was noted that nearly 50 percent of poplar and eucalyptus timber for Yamuna Nagar plywood industry units had come from Uttar Pradesh. The industry here needed abundant quantity of poplar and eucalyptus timber for plywood, block board, film faced plywood production etc. The delay in opening of the bridge caused a number of problems to plywood industry of Yamuna Nagar, a section of farmers and daily commuters. The closure of the bridge had led to major crises for India's largest plywood industry. However, following closure of the bridge, this supply had been halted. Only a few vehicles loaded with timber were coming here via Karnal.

Yamunanagar plywood industry is facing raw timber shortage after the Yamuna River Bridge that connects the Haryana with Uttar Pradesh closed down. The bridge on NH: 73 at Haryana-Uttar Pradesh border near Saharanpur was closed for traffic on Friday after cracks were found in caps of two pillars.
It is noted that nearly 50 percent of poplar and eucalyptus timber for yamunanagar plywood industry units comes from neighbouring state of Uttar Pradesh. The industry here needs abundant quantity of poplar and eucalyptus timber for plywood, block board, film faced plywood production etc. Till the time the bridge is repaired and declared safe, it will not be opened for traffic. The only feasible route for heavy vehicles to reach the area is via Karnal, which industrialists say that is too long. “If I bring the wood from Karnal route, it will overrun my costs. Forget making profits, I will have to bear losses in the market. If this bridge is not opened sometime soon, the industry will suffer heavy losses”, said a timber supplier from Yamunanagar.
On the other hand, local farmers in Yamunanagar are set to make gains from the situation. With tight timber supply, industries are bound to offer us good prices. The prices were up by 10 percent. According to reports, most of the factories in the region are running with small stock of raw wood.
