Temporary bridge to open after attack

A temporary bailey bridge replacing the Gote Twin Bridge blown up by armed groups last Thursday is due to open for traffic after emergency reconstruction work was completed on Monday, Xinhua reported.

The Arakan Army (AA), Ta'ang National Liberation Army (TNLA) and Kokang's Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA), had blown up the bridge.

Twenty-eight engineers from the Department of Bridges and over 100 skilled workers were involved in the non-stop five-day construction of the major bridge which stands on the Mandalay-Lashio-Muse road, a main border trade route in the northern Shan state that links China.

Traders said over 5,000 vehicles passed through the Gote Twin Bridge carrying commodities worth 15 million U.S. dollars daily to the Muse border trade point.
