ĐẮK LẮK – Chư Păm Bridge in in the Central Highlands province of Đắk Lắk collapsed due to the recent flooding, blocking traffic between Krông Bông District and National Highway 26.

The pillar under the middle of the bridge, collapsed some 1.5m, deforming the  surface of the bridge

The bridge, located on the key route of the district, connects Krông Bông District and National Highway 26. This is also the only road for residents in Cư Kty, Hòa Tân, Hòa Sơn and Hòa Thành communes travelling to Krông Bông General Hospital. 

Nguyễn Kiếm Anh, deputy head of the Krông Bông District’s Road Management Unit, said the unit was forced to ban all vehicles and people from crossing the bridge for  safety reasons.

He said authorised agencies have chalked out a plan to repair the bridge surface.

According to the schedule, the job will be completed in the next 10 days. – VNS
