The plan to build a bridge parallel to the Mahatma Gandhi Bridge over the Ganges River in Bihar and the Vikramshila Bridge at Bhagalpur is very important for Bihar. The construction of a bridge parallel to the Gandhi Bridge will make the traffic between North and South Bihar more accessible. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday handed over 14,228 crore road and bridge projects to Bihar.
All these projects will also reduce the travel time taken to Patna from other parts of the state. The department has claimed to have completed land acquisition for most of the projects. These projects will be completed in the next three to four years. The Department of Road Construction claims that once these projects are completed, people from all over the state will be able to reach Patna within five hours.
Traffic between North and South Bihar will be easier
To make the traffic between North and South Bihar more accessible, a new bridge will be constructed parallel to the Mahatma Gandhi Bridge. The 14 km long bridge along the approach road will be made four lanes. Its work has also been allotted after tender.
The bridge adjacent to Vikramshila
The existing Vikramshila Bridge in Bhagalpur is under a lot of traffic pressure. He can’t stand the pressure of the car anymore. 4.444 km will be constructed parallel to this bridge. It will be made with four lanes. The Prime Minister also laid the foundation stone for the construction of a four-lane bridge at Fulaut on NH-106 Birpur-Bihpur on the Kosi River. The length of this bridge is 28.93 km.
Road connectivity will be better than Jharkhand
The four-lane road between Rajouli in Jharkhand and Bakhtiyarpur in Patna will be constructed in three packages. Of these, two have received tenders and one is being prepared for DPR. The Ara-Mohania four-lane road is being constructed in two packages. Work is underway to build a new bridge over the Ganges to connect Katihar Manihari in Sahebganj, Jharkhand. Where the bridge falls on the border of Bihar, it is being connected to the east-west corridor of Purnia. This 49 km long Narenpur Purnia Four Lane road will be constructed.
Travel from Patna Ring Road will be easier
Apart from Patna, the foundation stone of Kanhauli-Ramnagar road was laid as part of the Patna Ring Road project through Chapra and Vaishali. Those who do not need to come to Patna in Bihar from the south can go out of the Patna Ring Road. The new bridge from Kanhauli to Ramnagar, Kachi Dargah – Bidupur Chaksikander, Sarai, Gandak and Dighawara-Sherpur six lane road will end at Kanhauli. The total length of the ring road connecting eight NH and six SHS is 137.5 km and the cost is about Rs 15,000 crore. The state government will spend Tk 31 billion for land acquisition in the project.
