Panaji:  The parallel bridge over Zuari River on a national highway linking North Goa to South will be completed by April, next year, the minister said.

State Public Works Department Minister Deepak Pauskar told reporters that 70 per cent of the work on the bridge has been completed, and the contractor working on the project has assured it to be completed by April 2021.

The bridge parallel to the existing structure has been proposed over Zuari river, which is an important link between both the districts of the state. The structure was supposed to be completed in December this year, which has been delayed due to current pandemic situation.

Pauskar said that four out of total eight lanes proposed for this bridge would be open for traffic by April, 2021. “Rest work will be completed simultenously,” he added.

The minister said that the approaching roads for this bridge will also be completed by April, 2021.

Responding to a question on dilapidated road conditions, Pauskar admitted that the condition is bad, blaming the work on sewerage pipeline which has been undertaken across the state.

He said that the hotmixing of all the major roads in Goa would be taken up after couple of days with Central government sanctioning Rs 150 crore for the project. The minister said that the roads would not be damaged for next ten years as the contractors have been given responsibility to repair them, if damaged.
