MANSEHRA: The Kaghan Development Authority (KDA) has commenced the repair work on a stream bridge that was severely affected by floods.
This bridge serves as a crucial link between the popular tourist destination of Naran and the scenic Saiful Muluk Lake.
As part of the repair process, the watercourse is being diverted to facilitate the bridge reconstruction.
KDA Assistant Director Assad Shahzad Khan expressed optimism, stating that they aim to complete the bridge reconstruction within a week after diverting the stream.
The stream originates from the snowy waters of the Saiful Muluk Lake and flows through the town of Naran in the Kaghan Valley before eventually joining the Kunhar River.
To ensure the safety of travelers, the road leading to the bridge has been temporarily closed to heavy traffic, and only small vehicles and jeeps are currently permitted to transport tourists to the picturesque Saiful Muluk Lake.
Besides, the traffic wardens have also been deployed to manage the flow of vehicles near the bridge.
