NAY PYI TAW August 29
AA, TNLA and MNDAA insurgents again blew up the 50 feet long and 20 feet wide reinforced concrete 31st - Mile Bridge near Narte Village, which was rebuilt by the Tatmadaw, at about 11 pm on 27 August. So, transport was interrupted again and travellers and local people were facing transport difficulties.
For the convenience of travellers, the Tatmadaw completed building a bailey bridge in 62 feet length and 11 feet width withstanding 60 tons of load on the damaged old one at about 4 pm today with the use of a bridgelayer. As a result, 21 small and large vehicles from Namsalat to Kunlong and 18 small and large vehicles from Kunlong to Namsalat totaling 39 could pass through the bridge.
