Locals in Agartala Madhya Pratapgarh demands repair of dilapidated Bamboo Bridge


BY TC News Desk

Agartala: September 06. The wheel of fortune has yet to turn in favor of the residents of Agartala Madhya Pratapgarh, who continue to endure treacherous journeys on deteriorating bamboo rafts as the sole means of transportation across the Bageshwar River.

 Once supported by sturdy wooden bridges, the community now faces increasing dangers and hardships due to the prolonged disrepair of these vital crossings. For several years, the wooden bridge linking both sides of the area has remained in a state of disrepair. However, it had long served as a lifeline for the local population. With time, a makeshift solution emerged in the form of a bamboo plank bridge.

Unfortunately, this alternative is gradually deteriorating, with sections of bamboo breaking apart. Tragically, accidents have become all too common for those who traverse this fragile structure, raising serious safety concerns among the residents. One of the most pressing issues is the difficulty faced by locals when transporting patients across the bridge. The community has united in a plea to expedite the repair of this crumbling bridge, which has caused suffering for far too long. Hundreds of families within the area heavily rely on this bridge for their daily commutes, and the uncertainty of when their ordeal will end continues to weigh heavily on their minds.
