The 40-foot-long Okkhon-Pyin Bridge on Mohnyin-Kadu laterite road in Kachin State was destroyed by erosion of the creek one year after its completion.
As the authorities have not yet built a new bridge, local residents will face transport difficulties in the coming rainy season.
“An engineer from Township Development Affairs Committee built the bridge with K12.8 million from the Department of Rural Development, but the bridge and approach structures were eroded by the creek in the last monsoon,” a local resident said.
An official of the
Department of Rural
Development said it submitted a report on the loss of the bridge in erosion to the Kachin State Department of Rural Development.
