Restoring Access to the Sukamenang Community, PT SMI Supports the Construction of the Kuis Bridge

Sukamenang Village in North Musi Rawas Regency, South Sumatra Province is home to around 500 families.

Almost all village residents work as farmers, whose land they cultivate is across the Sukamenang River. So a pedestrian bridge is needed for farmers to cross to the city to market their agricultural products.

The river crossing bridge used to be very worrying, because it had rotted and was experiencing damage due to age. This bridge itself has been around for around 35 years.

Therefore, PT SMI through the Social and Environmental Responsibility (TJSL) program "Jembatan Pelosok Negeri" in collaboration with Friends of Pedalaman also provided assistance for the construction of the Kuis Bridge in Sukamenang Village, South Sumatra Province.

It is hoped that this assistance can help the residents of Sukamenang Village to carry out their daily lives more safely and comfortably.

Construction took about 2 months starting from program socialization, bridge construction, to the inauguration stage.

With the construction of this bridge, the Remote Country Bridge program has contributed to the achievement of SDGs, including: SDGs Point 2: Zero Hunger; SDGs Point 3: Good Health & Well-being; and SDGs Point 8: Decent Work & Economic Growth.
