Tamin bridge, near Ziro has been partially collapsed due to the impact of a heavy over loaded vehicle crossing over the bridge in the midnight of Monday.
Chief Minister Pema Khandu has directed Commissioner PWD to restore the Tamin bridge, near Ziro on warfooting which reportedly has been partially collapsed due to the impact of a heavy over loaded vehicle crossing over the bridge in the midnight of Monday. The bridge connects Lower Subansiri with Kamle and Upper Subansiri Districts.
Despite Kamle DC had put up sign boards on the both side of bridge approaches with permissible load capacity of 9 MT for heavy vehicles inclusive of vehicle weight, the instant vehicle which was weighing more than the permissible limit had crossed over the bridge leading to the damage, reported Chief Engineer (Highways) PWD.
The department acting swiftly has started its restoration work and the movement of light vehicles could be materialised by 3 PM in the afternoon today.
It may be mentioned that during a recent review meeting of PWD with the CM, the matter was discussed in detail. CM had ordered for immediate construction of a new bridge for which tender has already been floated in media on June 7 last by the department. PWD Commissioner informed Khandu that the process is being expedited and within few months, every thing would be on track.
