According to reports, the bridge over Sanuorü stream was washed away during the 2016 monsoon season and the contractors in 2019 had assured to handover the completed four lane Sanuorü bridge before Hornbill festival 2020. Though running behind time, yet the four lane bridge partially opened up for the commuters today, which is a big relief specially for commuters towards the Civil Secretariat.
So far, the commuters had been taking one way route to the Civil Secretariat area and alternate route to return from Civil Secretariat through Bayavü, High School junction.
