The opening ceremony of the Nantsalein Bridge located on the Khamti-Sinthay-Lahe Road was held on 2 July. The ceremony was attended by Union Minister for Border Affairs Lt-Gen Tun Tun Naung, Sagaing Region Chief Minister U Myat Kyaw, Commander of the North-Western Command Brig-Gen Than Htike, Chairman of the Naga Self-Administered Zone U Tun Tun Win, regional government ministers, region/district/township department officials and local people.
First, Union Minister Lt-Gen Tun Tun Naung said that the state is working in the various sectors for the balanced development of all states and remote areas. For the economic and social development of the local ethnic people living in the underdeveloped Khamti district and in the Naga Self-Administered Zone, efforts are being made to construct new roads and bridges and upgrade existing roads.
The Thekkekyin-Phaungpyin-Homalin-Khamti road, Khamti-Sinthay-Lahe road and Sinthay-Lahe-Nanyun road, the entrances to the Naga Self-Administered Zone, are being developed by the annually allocated funds. So it would benefit the development of the Naga zone. The better transport will facilitate trade flows of the upper Chindwin regions and the Naga zone and develop businesses based on ethnic traditions and nature, he said.
After cutting the ribbons to open the bridge, the Union Minister and party inspected the bridge and presented traditional dance groups with cash awards.
The Nantsalein Bridge is located on the 24/4 milepost of the Khamti-Sinthay-Lahe Road and is a reinforced concrete bridge. This 330.45-foot long bridge was built by the Ministry of Construction with a K1,600 million fund. — MNA
