Washed-away bridge restored
Tura, Nov 30 - An extremely important timber bridge, which was the main connection between many villages of Dadenggre civil sub-division in West Garo Hills, was restored once again almost six months after it was washed away.
The bridge at Kalchengpara, one of the longest timber bridges in the region, was washed away by a flash flood early this year, thereby leading to harassment of many locals who had to take a roundabout journey for official work as well as trade and commerce.
Information of the bridge being redone and ready for use was shared yesterday by the local MLA through social media. � Correspondent
