Incomplete bridge

ABOUT 40 families living in Visama who rely heavily on the Visama feeder road bridge are still waiting for the bridge to be fixed after a few months now.

The bridge, which links the feeder road to the main road, has been incomplete for a while, leaving families in the area paying more for travelling to school and work.

Expenses in transporting their crops has been an issue for farmers and getting tractors to their farmland cost more now.

Sujend Prasad said as a farmer, he had to spend more in transporting crops with the incomplete bridge.

"Sometimes the bus does not service the area, so walking a long way to the main road is always an issue."
