Today i saw this old photo during my involvement in maintaining of roads and it was the first time i was on the newspaper.
The existing old bridge was partly damage during flood and been consider no longer safe to use by public. With the initiative of state head of public works dept, we bring state works exco to visit site which we are constructing new approach for Bailey bridge and hope to get assistance for funding for permanent bridge in future. At that time we almost finish removal of unsuitable material and doing sand replacement.
Few weeks later the temporary Baily bridge was completed and been open to use until permanent bridge available.
To my surprised today five years later , there are no news regarding the permanent bridge and nobody have any idea when it will be constructed and that temporary still serving the traffic. Looks like it will be there for long time.
What a shame !!!!
