Manipur was cut off on Monday from the rest of the country after the crucial bailey bridge across the Barak river was damaged a day after heavy landslide washed away a portion of NH-2. 
According to reports, the bridge located along the NH-37 in Tamenglong was damaged on Monday morning when a 10-wheeler goods-laden truck was crossing it. The structure was in a fragile condition since last night.  Owing to this, around 200 Imphal-bound goods-laden trucks from Jiribam side were stranded. Authorities have taken up repairing works on war-footing. 
The highway, considered as the second lifeline of the border state, assumed greater importance after a massive landslide at Viswema in Nagaland cut off the major Imphal-Dimapur national highway. 
Traffic movement along NH-2 came to standstill as 70 meters of the road has been washed away.
