The final bolts secure the carriage

The final bolts secure the carriage
VillageSolutions' Prem Gurung puts the final touches on the Sukaura WireBridge. Ten high-tensile bolts provide flexibility to the support structure and spread the load evenly across the wires. After the nuts are installed, the threads are damaged so that they won't come off from vibration or vandalism. (view small | med | large | orig)

The carriage is assembled on site. Two chairs are bolted together, and hang from the "Nag" (serpent) bar. The goddess of the river, the Nag is psychological insurance. The curved bars allow a narrow passage for feet, but securely hold small passengers. The roof is not for sun and rain, but rather keeps fingers away from the trolleys.

This enables the residents to position lamps in the most convenient locations (kitchen, sleeping areas, outside ladders and paths) and to switch them independently. (view small | med | large | orig)
