According to the officials of the Setu Corporation, this month the drivers will be able to fill the furrow. The construction of the bridge was stopped for a long time. There was no major reason. The bridge was not being built for a long time waiting only for a crane. Two special cranes were called for and the work on the under-construction bridge was started.
The work of girder launching stalled for two months. Setu Corporation started construction of overbridge at Alamnagar-Utrethia railway line crossing in February 2021, which was made in April 2022. At the same time, the work of girder launching came to a standstill for almost two months due to non-availability of crane to the railways. The drivers were facing a lot of trouble due to the late delay of the project.
Sandeep Gupta, Chief Project Manager of Setu Corporation said that the work of load testing of the bridge has to be done by the Public Works Department. After November 15, the PWD team will do load testing of the bridge. Thereafter the bridge will be handed over to PWD. The date of commissioning of the bridge will be decided by the PWD.
