Cidco inaugurates bridge at Kharghar
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.
