A reinforced concrete bridge is being built by the Ministry of Construction in Mongshu Township, Loilin District, Shan State (South), for the convenience of pedestrians, auto and truck traffic.
The government will spend K25 million building the new bridge.
Construction work began last December near the existing bridge, and is expected to be completed by the end of September.
Bridge engineers and workers are making concerted efforts to meet the targeted opening.
Upon completion of the project, the reinforced concrete bridge will be 130 feet long and 30 feet wide, with a capacity to support 60 tons.
A project engineer said the new bridge will help users cut travel time and ensure the smooth flow of commodities.
It will also provide education, health and transport benefits to the town’s residents.
As part of plans to raise the socio-economic status of the rural community, the government is developing more transport and communication infrastructure projects each year.—Township IPRD  (Translated by Khaing Thanda Lwin)
