Imphal, July 17: The crucial Barak bridge located along the National Highway-102 collapsed on Monday morning, cutting off land-locked Manipur from rest of the country, an official said.
The bridge collapsed when a 10-wheeler goods-laden truck was passing through it, a transport department official said, adding that the structure was in a fragile condition since Sunday night.
This has left around 200 goods-laden trucks coming from Jiribam town to Imphal stranded. Repairing works are being carried out on war-footing, the official said.
The Barak bridge is located along the Imphal-Jiribam highway and passes through the hill district of Tamenglong.
Earlier, Imphal-Dimapur highway has been cut off after a portion of the highway caved in and sank near Viswema, Nagaland .
A 60 to 70 feet long section of Imphal-Dimapur highway caved in and sank at Viswema about 10.50 Kms away from Mao day before yesterday .
As the sunk section cannot be repaired immediately, people have started taking alternative routes which are mostly inter-village roads between Kohima and Mao.
