Expanding the robust relationship between our twin cities, Cuttack and Bhubaneswar, the Odisha government has accomplished yet another achievement just before Independence Day is approaching marking a milestone in the history of the cities.
A three kilometers long Trisulia bridge has been successfully constructed over a branch (Kathajodi) of our pride Mahanadi River connecting the two cities from Judicial Academy Chhakk in Cuttack to Barang in Bhubaneswar. The bridge is all set to inaugurated by CM Naveen Patnaik on 19th July 2017.
But what’s making news is that the Bridge shall be named after our great leader Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose as informed by Barabati-Cuttack legislator Debashish Samantray. This bridge is reportedly the largest bridge in the state as of now. The bridge has been fully inspected by Health Minister Pratap Jena, Cuttack collector Nirmala Mishra and DCP Akhileswar Singh and all safety protocol has been properly tested for.
The legislator expressed his gratitude to the chief minister on behalf of the citizens of the twin cities by saying:“This is a big gift from the chief minister to people of the twin city.”
The bridge is all set to bring together the two cities by decreasing the travel distance by 12kms.The Bridge is strategically constructed to reduce traffic in the national highway-5 and fuel expenses for the people. The construction of the bridge started way back in 2011 with an estimated expenditure of Rs 107 Crore by Road and House Development Department. Apart from traffic posts on both end of the bridge, the commissionerate has proposed for establishment of a Beat house on the Barang side of the bridge to keep in check the law offenders.
This is a significant step towards the modernization of our state and its infrastructure with first of its kind three lane bridge.
