A new Bailey bridge has been constructed over the Jayashree River along the East-West Highway in Gaidakot of Nawalparasi. Vehicles have started plying over the new bridge after the installation was completed yesterday evening.
Western Regional Road Division Office, Butwal had installed the bridge within two weeks. The beidge equipment were purchased Pokhara and installed within of 13 days, according to a sub-engineer Bishnu Khanal of the office.
Although the bridge is operational, vehicles weighing more than 50 tons are not allowed over the bridge, said Khanal. “The bridge was damaged because of over-burden vehicles, so if we don’t give careful consideration with respect to the heaviness of vehicles, we are well on the way to face some major snags soon,” he clarified.
Vehicles were plying through a diversion over the river after the bridge was damaged in the first week of August.
