Mawlamyine, July (5)
A temporary bridge was to be built to replace the Belin Kyoneik Bridge destroyed by mines on the Yangon-Mawlamyine road, but it has not been repaired because the military council could not provide security, an official of the Mon State Office of the military council, who did not wish to be named, told Than Lwin Times.
On June 29, at around 4:30 a.m., the allied resistance fighters detonated a landmine on Kyoneik Bridge on the Yangon-Mawlamyine highway near Shwe Yaung Pya village between Thaton and Belin Townships in Mon State.
One lane of the bridge was destroyed in the explosion, and the military regime has yet to repair it.
The Road Department plans to replace Belin Kyoneik Bridge with a temporary bridge, but no one dares go there because the military council cannot provide security, the source said.
For the time being, small vehicles and motorcycles can pass on the Kyoneik Bridge, but trucks and passenger buses have to cross it at their own risk.
At least three people, including departmental officials, were killed, and 31 others, including a colonel, were injured in the mine attack.
