after more than a year, there will be a bridge again over
the river in Akyaka.
In the end of the year 2006, the old,
wooden bridge was taken down for security reasons.
On 30.12.2007, with a small
celebration, a new bridge was put in place, about 50m streamup of the
When the officials were going on
the bridge, they first thought of an earthquake until they realized that
the whole bridge was moving. Just in time they managed to jump of the
bridge on hard ground, then our bridge twisted a bit and finally broke
to pieces and fell in the river....
This event went through the national press and tv as one of the
"funniest" events of 2007.
Now a new and more
successful effort is made and this time it should last longer,
we will keep you informed with the
state of the work.
Now it's done! The new bridge, finished and more solid than the first
effort (we hope!)
