The road which collapsed on Wednesday is causing untold suffering to over 4,000 residents in four villages –Shiber Kuthi, Dharmapal, Boalmari, and Char Kharua

Dharala River erosion has devoured a 120 meters of roadway at Wapda Bazar in Kulaghat union parishad of Lalmonirhat Sadar upazila, snapping road communications with four villages.

The road which collapsed on Wednesday is causing untold suffering to over 4,000 residents in four villages –Shiber Kuthi, Dharmapal, Boalmari, and Char Kharua.

Roads and Highways Department officials and local people said strong river currents after the recent rains and water from upstream caused the 120 meters of road to collapse, reports UNB.

Seeking immediate renovation of the road, farmer Md Lal Mia of Shiber Kuthi village said: “We are completely isolated now and have nowhere to go for our livelihood.”

Kulaghat Union Parishad Chairman Md Idris Ali said the road was submerged by rising river water levels, which was triggered by constant rain over the last couple of days and water from upstream.

However, the district administration started repair work on Thursday and it will take four to five days to restore the road, Idris added. 

Lalmonirhat Roads and Highways Executive Engineer Ali Nunayen said: “It is not possible to reconstruct the road right now. We are making a temporary arrangement with bamboos and sandbags. It will take a few days to complete the repair work.”
