5 billion MNT bridge collapses after heavy rain
A newly built bridge in Tes soum of Uvs Province collapsed on Saturday during a heavy rain.
The bridge was commissioned by the Roads and Transportation Ministry at the cost of 5.38 billion MNT and spans 325 meters. The concrete bridge was built by HKB International Holding LLC of China and became operational in September 22, 2012.
The construction of the bridge was supervised by N.Eondon, who was a monitoring engineer of the Roads Department of the former Ministry of Roads, Transportation and Construction.
The Ministry of Roads reported that the bridge’s plans were made by GBET LLC.
Locals have expressed anger at the poor job the Chinese contractor did with the bridge. Uvs Province officials didn’t comment on what will become of the collapsed bridge.
