Addressing the locals on the occasion, Alo Libang said, “we are committed for development, but due to Covid 19 pandemic all the development process get delayed. This bridge was a long felt demand of the people and a cherished project of the area which has been fulfilled today, would be a lifeline of Mariyang-Geku assembly constituency and will benefit  thousands of people living on both banks and several circles of the area,” he said.

The bridge has been constructed under the RIDF fund with a project cost of Rs. 646 lakhs by PWD Mariyang division. The span of the bridge is 81 meter and was completed in November 2020.
