July 17, 2017: Tension among people arose in Manipur after the crucial Barak Bridge located along the National Highway-102 collapsed on Monday morning. Reportedly, the bridge collapsed when a 10-wheeler goods-laden truck was passed through. The bridge which was in a fragile condition since Sunday night unable to bear the weight collapsed down, leaving the state cut off from the country. This has resulted in nearly 200 goods-laden trucks coming from Jiribam town to Imphal stranded.

The Barak bridge is located along the Imphal-Jiribam highway and passes through the hill district of Tamenglong. The highway, considered as the second lifeline of the border state, assumed greater importance after a massive landslide at Viswema in neighbouring Nagaland cut off the major Imphal-Dimapur national highway.
