British Raj bridge washed away in Balouchistan
Heavy rains devastated the Mach area of Balochistan. A century-old historic bridge at Bibi Nani has washed away, severing the rail link with Quetta with other parts of the country.
Local sources indicate that after the rain, the bridge collapsed due to floodwaters while the railway track was also damaged.
While the pipeline was damaged again in the Bolan area as a result of the gas supply to Quetta being affected.
On the other hand, the local officials visited the site. The bridge built during the British period could not resist the recent monsoon rains and much of the bridge collapsed because of the heavy rains. As a result, the rail line between Machh and Kolpur was also damaged.
It is worth mentioning that Quetta’s connection to Sindh, Punjab, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was cut off for one week due to the inundation of the railway line in Sibi and Bakhtiarabad.
