A Bailey bridge, connecting two strategic locations in Kurung Kumey district of Arunachal Pradesh, was washed away in a flash flood that hit the region on July 2, 2022.
The bridge over Oyong river near Kororu village connected Koloring, the district headquarters, with Damin — a vital link at the India-China border, an official of the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) said on July 3.1
The impact was so massive that only a panel of the bridge could be seen 100 m (330 feet) downstream, BRO’s Project Arunank Chief Engineer Brig Anirudh S Kanwar said.
