1 year on, reconstruction of  Old Dhansiri Bridge continues
Seen in the pictures is the worksite of the Old Dhansiri Bridge, Dimapur on January 16, 2018. The Old Dhansiri Bridge, built by the British army pre-independence, was closed down for re-construction on January 9, 2017. The project is estimated to cost Rs 9.8 crore. The closure of the bridge, compounded by the damage sustained by the Nagarjan Bridge, has for the past year caused severe traffic congestion in Dimapur. (Photo by Soreishim Mahong)
