The bad news is that the bridge wasn't completed on 7 May as advised by Lesley Nyawo. I have been at Balule from 8 May to 11 May and was advised by one of the officials in authority that there was a delay by the contractors and that it was only going to be completed on Thursday 14 May. :cry:

The good news is that it will probably open sometime this month. It looks like it is near completion, with just a section leading onto the bridge from Balule side to be finalized. :)
