Politics and bridges

Maintaining Mulawabesi bridge
Maintaining Mulawabesi bridge

Routine maintenance continues for the bridges that are accessible. Political turmoil still makes it difficult to reach many sites. EcoSystems is not the only group to be affected--the entire city of Kathmandu is short of fuel while the road links with India are blocked. Discussions are under way for site surveys in several parts of the country. A new 'hanger' design will be tested in one of the long bridges shortly, as part of the ongoing program to further improve the service life of the bearings.
