New bridge to be constructed on Bhagirathi River

New bridge to be constructed on Bhagirathi River

The Bengal Government will come up with another bridge on the river Bhagirathi. This one will connect Kalna and Shantipur, and thus, the districts of Purba Bardhaman and Nadia. The State Public Works Department (PWD) will take up the construction.

The length of the bridge, including the approach area, will be 2 km. A preliminary budget of Rs 700 crore has been allocated for the bridge, as well as a railway over-bridge that will come up adjacent to the proposed bridge.

The bridge will serve as a fast link between not only between Kalna and Shantipur, but also Katwa in Purba Bardhaman and Tribeni in Hooghly district.

The bridge is also expected to be a major boost to heritage tourism as Nadia district is a destination for many pilgrims. The handloom industry will also witness a surge as better connectivity will ensure more people from other parts of the state coming to places like Dhatrigram, Samudragarh, Shantipur and others handloom hubs.
