“The Nugong steel suspension bridge was inaugurated on 6th December 2022 last for public utility in hush-hush manner before its actual completion. But on our inspection of the said bridge, NBK have found lots of apprehension on the bridge for its capacity and future reliability.

The NBK has maintained that the bridge’s strength lies on the wind anchors as the mere suspension cabbies can’t hold the bridge and so massive anchorages are needed in the both ends of the bridge. In their inspection of the bridge on Sunday, the knot and bolts of the bridge were found loose which creates fear psychosis among the local people at Nugong Banggo in passing through the bridge.
Hence, the team NBK has appealed to the government for early rectification of the faulty parts of the bridge in the public interest.
