Gadkari assures starting Brahmani bridge work in Rourkela next month




 The foundation stone for the much-awaited second bridge on the Brahmani River is likely to be laid by the end of June, official sources said.

This was communicated by Union Minister of Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Nitin Gadkari in a letter to Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.

"The tender for the project has already been floated and the last date of submission of bids is 12th June, 2017. I am sure we will be able to finish all necessary legal process of award within June and lay foundation by end of June, 2017," Gadkari wrote to Patnaik.

Gadkari's letter was in response to Patnaik's letter of May 24 seeking to know the latest status of the bridge.

Gadkari's letter said that the Centre decided to convert the bridge from two-lane to six-lane as per the request of local MP and Union Minister Jual Oram, Petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan and Rourkela MLA Dilip Ray.

Gadkari said that the entire project was split into two parts: 6-lane bridge on the Brahmani and another 4-lane project from Brahmani bypass to Rajamunda.






Editorial

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
