Bridge collapsed at Mahur, Haflong

The road communications in-between Haflong – Maibang and Haflong – Laisong are totally disrupted due to bridge collapse when the NKC Construction company was passing two overloaded trucks carrying heavy load for the construction of Mahasadak near Mahur, 40 KM from Haflong in Dima Hasao on Monday at about 7 PM.

This Bailey bridge with 9 ton capacity was constructed way back in 1980s by the GREF and since then the bridge was not maintained properly. The PWD however cautioned with a signboard saying that this was a weak bridge and the load should not exceed 9 ton. But most of the construction companies engaged in the construction of Mahasadak ignoring the caution passing heavy trailers carrying heavily loaded materials and machineries to the construction site. No authority has filed any FIR for such incident till the date.

The people of Maibang, Mahur and Laisong are facing untold difficulties due the disruption of road communication.
