Heavy Rain Causes Rakti Khola Bridge that connects Siliguri to Mirik to Collapse

Those travelling to Mirik from Siliguri please note that Rakti khola bridge neat Simulbari (after Garidhura and before reaching the Rohini turning) has collapsed yesterday evening, so please take a detour when travelling to Mirik.

Some months ago portion of bridge had collapsed, then sacks and boulders were used parallel to the bridge for temporary use.
