Tottering bailey bridge caves in for 3rd time
The Daat Bhanga bailey bridge on Jamalpur-Madarganj road has collapsed again, for the fourth time in eight years, and this time too failing to hold an overweight truck. The driver of the cement-laden truck has managed to escape. Road Transport and Highways Division officials said that the bridge collapsed around 1pm Sunday. It would take at least seven days to repair the bridge. Currently, traffic movement has been kept operational using alternative roads.

The authorities also placed warning signs barring vehicles above 5 tonnes from crossing the bridge. Condition of the five other steel bridges in the 35km-stretch between Jamalpur town and Madarganj upazila is also poor. Last year, the government took an initiative to build six concrete bridges replacing the rundown bailey bridges.
