Mangan, 09 Sept:
The bridge at Bar Khola at 4th Mile, Lower Mangshila on the Dikchu-Mangan highway in North Sikkim is in poor condition and poses a threat to the safety of those commuting along this route.
Unfortunately, it also sits on the only main road and is receiving more traffic. The iron plates and nut bolts on the bridge have loosened and it is risky for loaded vehicles to cross the bridge.
If repair work is not undertaken immediately, there is high chance of an accident, say residents of 4th Mile.
They also informed that they have already informed BRO but nothing has been done so far.
