Connecting villages after 7 years

After seven years of the 2010 floods, communities of 7 villages are reconnected with the reconstruction of 600 feet long suspension bridge in UC Barawal bandai District Upper Dir. Previously the span of the bridge was 220 feet which was washed away by floods and disconnected more than 450 households on both sides of the bridge. People had to wade into the stream or to use a longer route to access to the other side. The suspension bridge has reconstructed and extended by SRSP under EU funded PEACE project. The total cost of the scheme is PKR 8,037,545 in which EU share is PKR 7,553,152 and community contribution is PKR 484,493.
