A truck capsized on the Tinniang bridge

A truck capsized on the Tinniang bridge, around 28 km away from Nongstoin on the way to Langpih, as the wooden bridge gave way, on Saturday. Though there were a few people on the truck, no one was injured.

Local villagers accompanied by some commuters, however, built a subway and restored the communication within five hours.

Local people on Sunday told The Shillong Times that the PWD has not repaired the bridge though its condition had been vulnerable since last year.

The State Government, immediately after the Langpih firing incident in which four villagers fell victim to Assam Police bullets last year, promised to build an all-weather road to the border village, but Saturday’s incident speaks volume of the Government promise.
