Army engineers constructed a 70-feet Bailey Bridge on the Dikchu-Sanklang road in Sikkim's capital Gangtok within 72 hours to restore connectivity that was lost due to recent floods in the state.

Trishakti Corps Army Engineers started the construction work on June 23, according to the PRO Defence Guwahati.

PRO Defence credited the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) and local administration for their efforts to restore connectivity.

The bridge constructed at Dett Khola on Dikchu-Sanklang road is a significant link to “enable vehicular traffic from Dikchu to Sanklang towards Chungthang”, said PRO Defence.

It would aid in conveyance of necessities such as critical healthcare for the affected people, added PRO Defence.

“The bridge is an important link to enable vehicular traffic from Dikchu to Sanklang towards Chungthang. The bridge will assist in providing basic necessities including critical medical aid for the affected people of Mangan district,” as per the PRO Defence, reported ANI.
