Last week, while on a work related trip, passed along the Nam Theun II project. The backpackers are still doing the "Loop" but the old road has now more or less disappeared. This is were the new road is crossing the old road (looking to the west at 17 51.859 N and 105 02.740 E). The old bridge is completely gone and while in while in early March this year they were taking the bridge out, the location is now under water. The old bridge being demolished and below where the old bridge used to be - access road to the old road visible in the center of the picture. The reservoir is quickly filling up and the yellow sign (sorry not very clear on the pic below) warns that the water can come up quickly with strong currents. The small white building next to it is a new nursery in one of the resettlement villages (Ban Sop Ma ?) which probably is not the best place for it being more or less on the shoreline of the reservoir.
