A road from 2006 awaits a bridge to reach this remote village

The construction of a Bailey bridge, around 15 meters long, benefitting 26 households will begin on March 5. The bridge, part of the 10th Plan project is estimated to cost around Nu 1mn. But now it  has been learnt that the amount is not sufficient to complete the bridge. Though a farm road to the village was constructed in 2006, Tongzhuna remained cut from the rest of the gewog without the bridge. During summer, its difficult to cross the river as it swells. Tongzhuna village, one of the remotest chiwogs in Kabisa, can be reached only after a three hour walk from the nearest road. With the bridge, it is expected that a trekking route can be extended to the village, boosting  local economy.
