Kyungu Bridge Perennial Challenges As Unfortunate

Share the story

Minister of Transport and Public Works Jacob Hara has described Kyungu Bridge perennial challenges as unfortunate, saying the importance of the Karonga-Songwe M1 Road cannot be overemphasised.

The recent incident, according to Roads Authority (RA), involves an approach to the bridge—which has been washed away.

The incident has disrupted crossborder business through Songwe Border, as the road between the border and Kaporo has been closed.

According to the minister, government is working on a lasting solution to challenges related to the bridge.

He said :”It is sad that my office never made any follow-up on the rehabilitation works that took place after a similar incident. However, my technical team will visit the place to assess the situation for a permanent solution. “

A statement from Roads Authority (RA) says a contractor is currently mobilising resources to the site to reinstate the bridge approach.

Kyungu Bridge is at a distance of 6 kilometers from Songwe Border.
