Cidco in­au­gu­rates bridge at Kharghar

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI -

The newly con­structed bridge across the ex­ist­ing chan­nel near Ko­pra un­der­pass was opened to traf­fic on Wed­nes­day.

The bridge (3.5m width) con­nect­ing Kharghar to Sion-Pan­vel High­way near Ko­pra un­der­pass was too nar­row for the vol­ume of traf­fic it sees ev­ery day.

It led to traf­fic jam and in­con­ve­nienced com­muters. There had long been a de­mand for ad­di­tional bridge or widen­ing of the ex­ist­ing bridge.

Se­nior pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer of Cidco, Mo­han Ni­nawe, said: “Cidco de­cided to con­struct an­other 5-m width par­al­lel to the ex­ist­ing one.”

He said, “The ex­ist­ing bridge will be used by those go­ing from Kharghar node to Sion-Pan­vel high­way and newly con­structed bridge will be used by the traf­fic en­ter­ing from high­way to Kharghar.”

Due to con­struc­tion of this bridge, the traf­fic at Pravesh Marg will be re­duced.
