Villagers in Uttaradit’s Pichai district on Monday called on the authorities to urgently repair the wooden platform of a pedestrian/motorcycle bridge along a railway bridge.

Sathit Thingtron, head of Moo 4 village in tambon Ban Dara, said residents of his village need to use the bridge to travel in and out of the village.

He said the 1.5-metre-wide bridge was built during the reign of King Rama V along with the Poramin railway bridge.

Sathit said villagers place planks over the holes but the bridge is unsafe.
