Guwahati : After nearly two months, the Indian Army has successfully reconnected the northern Sikkim region of Lachen with the mainland. The area was cut off due to the devastating flash floods that occurred in the state, officials said on Tuesday.

The important Bailey bridge over Zeema Chu at Zeema has been completed by Indian Army troops of the Trishakti Corps, with help from the Border Roads Organization (BRO), according to an official statement.

With this, the entire Lachen region that had been isolated since the evening of October 3 is now finally connected. The bridge will now make it possible to restore smooth car traffic and the delivery of relief supplies to the significant town of Lachen,” the statement continued.

According to an Army official, the 100 feet Bailey bridge was constructed over Zeema Chu that had to face the first impact of the flash floods.
