Union Minister Nitin Gadkari will inaugurate the newly built, 5.1 km long, four-lane, cable stayed bridge over river Mandovi in Goa on January 27.
The bridge will support and sustain burgeoning traffic in Panjim. It will facilitate routing of Mumbai bound traffic coming in from Bangalore via Ponda route and Old Goa towards NH-17, bypassing the main Panjim City.
The bridge will also be an aesthetically pleasing landmark for tourism development in the state of Goa.
1,00,000 m3 of high strength, high performance concrete, enough to fill 40 Olympic size swimming pools, was used for making this fully indigenously built bridge.
