 Construction of Bajrang Setu will be completed, North India’s bridge

The construction of Bajrang Setu near Laxman Jhula Bridge is currently progress. Approximately 70% of the work has been finished. According to Public Works Department officials, the bridge’s framework has been prepared in Chandigarh. The majority of its components have also arrived.

Bajrang Setu will be ready by the first week of January next year. The construction of this 132.50-meter span bridge, which will cost 680 million rupees, began in January of last year. The construction of this 57-meter-high bridge is 70% complete.

Laxman Jhula Bridge was 92 years old. When it reached a dangerous state, the administration decided to close it last year for security reasons. The bridge closure has made it difficult for tourists and locals to travel between Swargashram and Tapovan.

70% of the bridge’s construction is finished. Only 30% of the civil work is completed. The work will be completed by the end of this year, and travel on the bridge will be permitted by the first week of January next year. – Ashutosh, Loni-Virbhadra Chief Engineer

Locals and tourists must travel two kilometers from Ramjhoola. The movement of two-wheeled vehicles on Ramjhoola Bridge has currently been halted for safety concerns. This has exacerbated the situation.

The bridge will begin to move in the first week of January

Some civil work remains to be done, but it will be completed by December of this year. The bridge will be operational in the first week of January of next year. The plan, though, was to have the bridge completed by July of this year.

A glass walkway will be installed on the bridge

Bajrang Setu will be a one-of-a-kind bridge in the Rishikesh region. Glass pathways will be installed on both sides of the bridge to add to its splendor. Footpaths will be erected on both sides, measuring one and a half to two meters wide and composed of 65mm-thick glass. Furthermore, the bridge’s tower will be modeled after the Kedarnath Temple. This would be the first glass footpath in North India. Light vehicles will be permitted on the bridge as well.”
