Although there are difficulties in a lack of workers and low time duration, the bridges and roads were the first to be reconstructed so that there would be easy transport, which implements stability and the peace process in Maungtaw”, U Zaw Min, assistant director (civil) of Maungtaw District Road Department said yesterday.
During the terrorist attacks of 25 August, extremist terrorists destroyed roads and bridges with landmines and by cutting down trees to block and cut off transport.
