According to Mr Gadkari the bridge which is coming up on the Zuari River which is parallel to the existing old Zuari bridge is expected to be completed by the September next year, “But we will make all the efforts to open at least one lane before that,” Gadkari told the media. 

“The work on the Zuari bridge is going on. We have planned a viewing gallery by constructing two towers as part of this bridge. It will be a better tourist attraction then Eiffel Tower. It will have a restaurant and art gallery besides special spaces for small time vendors to sell arts and crafts,” Mr Gadkari said.

“The new Mandovi bridge that was inaugurated by Late Parrikar before his demise is handling the traffic of more that 60 thousand vehicles every day,” said Gadkari adding, this reduced the traffic jams in the capital city.
