The Road Development Agency says it has received a report of a collapsed bridge in Mpulungu in the Northern Province on the Mpulungu to Mbala road (M2), approximately 8 kilometers from Mpulungu town at 32 kilometers from Mbala Junction.
RDA Director Communications and Corporate Affairs Public Masuzyo Ndhlovu says the Lunzua bridge approach has been washed away following flash floods being experienced in the area.
Mr. Ndhlovu said the flash floods that have taken a toll in the area are a result of the normal to above normal rains being experienced in the region.
He said the RDA technical staff have dispatched to site as the road has been completely cut off.
Mr. Ndhlovu said the Agency is doing everything possible to ensure that the flow of traffic is normalised.
He added that the road users will be advised in due course of alternative routes to use as we ascertain the immediate interventions in order to restore connectivity.
