    The Sanahie Trace Bridge in the Penal/Debe region has been closed, according to the area’s councillor.

    In a Facebook post yesterday, Barrackpore West Councillor Nicholas Kanhai revealed landslides on either side of the bridge.

    He reiterated that the bridge is now closed to vehicular traffic.

    He says it has been neglected by the Works and Local Government Ministers, while a resource-strapped Penal/Debe Regional Corporation tried its best to do what it can.

    Mr Kanhai says a timeline for repair of the bridge is unknown as it awaits the intervention of relevant authorities.
