Arrangements underway to ensure uninterrupted communication links following Kyoneik Bridge destruction


During a visit to inspect the damage to the Kyoneik Bridge yesterday, Mon State Chief Minister U Aung Kyi Thein said that arrangements are underway to construct a new bailey bridge and a temporary route as soon as possible, aiming to ensure there is no disruption to travel following the damage caused by a mine attack perpetrated by KNLA and PDF terrorists on 11 May.
Yesterday, the chief minister, along with officials, visited the Kyoneik Bridge to inspect the situation where the collapse of 100 per cent of the embankment is causing difficulties for both people and vehicles to pass through.
The chief minister instructed officials from the Ministry of Construction and the Shwe Thanlwin Highway Company to conduct repair works as soon as possible to ensure uninterrupted flow of goods in the region, prevent delays in public travel, and coordinated efforts to meet these needs.
The Kyoneik Bridge, a 95-foot-long and 41-foot-wide reinforced concrete bridge with a 60 tonnes of maximum withstanding, situated on the Yangon-Mawlamyine Highway in Thaton Township, is utilized by the community for daily social and economic activities. — Thet Naing (Mawlamyine)/TH
