    Satellite images show two roads from Doklam which separately lead to the town of Yatung in the Chumbi Valley, where China bases the soldiers that it uses for its operations in the high-altitude Doklam Plateau.

    - Satellite images show China steadily making roads in Doklam
    - Some run a few hundred metres from Indian posts like Doka La in Sikkim

    High-res satellite images accessed by NDTV show that China has, over the last decade, been steadily converting tracts of land in the disputed Doklam Plateau into full-fledged all-weather roads that run a few hundred metres from Indian posts such as Doka La in Sikkim. The satellite images show two roads from Doklam which separately lead to the town of Yatung in the Chumbi Valley, where China bases the soldiers that it uses for its operations in the high-altitude Doklam Plateau.

    The state-run Global Times said this week, "During the Doklam face-off, Beijing intensified efforts to develop infrastructure in the region and road construction there will be a long-term trend."

    India backs Bhutan's claim to the Doklam Plateau, which lies North of the "Chicken's Neck" - a narrow strip that links India to its northeastern states. Any roads in or around this area are a cause of concern for Delhi because they could give Beijing access to this strategically sensitive terrain.


    ------------------------

    The irony is that if India had settled the issue quietly, China would likely have been prepared to make diplomatic concessions on the matter of road construction.

    But now that India has turned it into a big diplomatic incident, the Chinese government has no other option but to speed up road construction in Donglang.

    Gymochen is the eventual destination of these road. It sits on the last crest that looks down into the chickens neck/Silguri corridor. This places India on the defensive as the entire Indian north east is exposed. PLA is pushing to create infrastructure that could support large force in the Doklam area. At the moment the physical geography prevents large scale troop movement. However with additional all weather roads slowly coursing and spreading south to Gymochen it will place PLA in a position that it could cut off the Silguri Corridor in a decisive move. This is what has turned Doklam issue into what it is. Both sides know what is at stake here.

    It seems strange that after all that noise from India about their Chicken's Neck Corridor, their "mutual defence treaty" with Bhutan, and the fact that they will never tolerate a road in Donglang, they have quietly allowed China to build multiple major roads there.

    And what they say is, have you built the road yet? Where are the pictures? :cheesy:

    Well their own NDTV obliged, here are the pictures.

    It is a very nice news and I was waiting for it. Some indian members made such tall claims as to leave PDF if China ever built the road... so will they abide by their promise or it was just another claim that they made...:lol:
    I knew China will build the road eventually since there's no one to stop them and there was no such agreement was reached between China and India. The next logical step to be start the pressing the chicken's neck slowly. :D

    Please share the pics :)

    This is what it's all about. The chickens neck/Silguri Corridor. PLA is improving it's iroad network from Chumbi Valley past Dokla and south to Gymochen - which is the real target destination of the logistical infrastructure. I think this is exactly what PLA is doing right now and this is why India reacted this summer. However PLA has learn't from the summer incident and provide flank protection to ward off Indian Army. Then it has resumed construction of roads heading south toward Gymochen. Expect soon more then one road built south to Gymochen which will enable PLA to move large forces south to Gymochen from Chumbi valley thereby threatening Silguri Corridor. I think the Indian government privately have conceded defeat but they can't make it public. Instead Indian Army now will be forced to beef up it's strength in Silguri sector to insure against the posture that PLA will have [sat in strength on top of the Gymochen crest overlooking south toward Silguri] thanks to these new roads.

    And Indian government denied it. The road building is just speculation.
