Phaktanglung Rural Municipality Provides Transportation Services to All Villages with Temporary Suspension Bridge

Tamo Bridge Construction in Taplejung (Phaktanglung) – To provide transportation services in all villages within the municipality, Phaktanglung Rural Municipality has constructed a suspension bridge over the Tamor River. Due to budget constraints in building a permanent bridge, the rural municipality has initiated to build of the Tamar Bridge.

The rural municipality has built two suspension bridges over the Tamor River to operate vehicles. Currently, these bridges, one from Fungling and another from the small Khola (stream) near the VDC section have been constructed and repaired with a budget of NPR 10 lakhs allocated for an interim period for Tamor Bridge construction and maintenance. With the allocated budget, the construction of the bridge over the Tamor River has been completed, and plans are in place to repair other bridges.

Phaktanglung is geographically challenging. The Tamor River divides the rural municipality into two parts. Ward No. 1 Sawa Din, Ward No. 2 Khijenim, Ward No. 4 Ikhabu, and Ward No. 6 Lelep are situated on the right bank of the Tamor River, whereas Ward No. 3 Lingkheym and Ward No. 5 Taphethok, as well as Ward No. 6 Sekathum and other villages, are located on the left bank of the Tamor River. Crossing from one village to another necessitates crossing the Tamor River.

Currently, all wards are connected by road networks. However, due to the absence of a permanent motorable bridge, residents in the area faced transportation challenges. To address this issue, Phaktanglung Rural Municipality-1, Phaktanglung, has taken the initiative to construct a temporary suspension bridge over the Tamor River. Following the construction of this bridge, transportation services have now reached all villages within the municipality. Limbu, the Chairman of Phaktanglung Rural Municipality-1, explained this development.

Before this, due to the absence of a permanent motorable bridge, residents faced difficulties traveling across the Tamor River. With the construction of the temporary motorable bridge, transportation services have now reached all the rural villages. As per the need, the construction of permanent bridges will continue, as mentioned by Limbu.
