buner bridge

DAGGAR, May 8: Construction work on a 200-meter steel bridge between Nawagai and Soora areas of Buner district was inaugurated yesterday.

Leader of the Bunir National Youth Organisation, Mr Gulzar Hussain Babak, inaugurated the project, which will cost about 30 million rupees.

Mr Babak said the bridge would be set up with the cooperation of international organisation Department for International Development. He said the bridge would facilitate people in their travel and that it would be completed in one year.

About the bridge, a local resident told TNN, “We have been facing problems while taking patients to hospitals as we have to cover about 15 kilometres distance on roads. But this bridge will be a short-cut and easy way to reach our destinations.”
