Soan River Bridge to reopen for Traffic on August 14 After Repair Work

RAWALPINDI: On August 14, the Soan River bridge will reopen to traffic after being closed for 45 days owing to a partial collapse. The bridge, which connects Rawat and Kutchery Chowk, experienced traffic suspension while undergoing repairs, diverting traffic to a nearby bridge. The reopening was confirmed by a senior project official, who added that the strength of the bridge will be evaluated before it resumes traffic.

The official continued, "The traffic flow has improved as a result of the removal of debris and the application of asphalt on potholes of the adjacent road." Although the rebuilt section of the bridge is now open, ongoing construction projects, particularly widening the bridge across the Soan River, are still unfinished and may not wholly relieve road users, including inhabitants of housing societies.

Numerous commuters have experienced inconvenience as a result of the failure to perform these maintenance procedures prior to allowing two-way traffic on the bridge soon after its partial collapse on June 27. A working woman who commutes from Chaklala to DHA II daily expressed her unhappiness with the hour-long morning and evening commutes across the Soan Bridge.
