A Cable Suspension Bridge Over Ganga In Patna

A feasibility study is going to be conducted for a cable suspension bridge over the Ganga in Patna to ease load on the Mahatma Gandhi Setu.Similar to the six-lane Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the US, the proposed cable suspension bridge would also have six lanes. It would connect Kacchi Dargah in Patna City with Bidupur in Vaishali.

National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) had approved the project last year after a preliminary feasibility study. The proposed bridge would be 4-km-long and connected with 16km of approach roads.

In a cable suspension bridge, steel cables hang between two towers and are anchored to the ground or to a massive structure at both ends of the construction. The lightweight steel cables support the bridge deck. The project will be executed in public-private partnership (PPP) mode by Bihar State Road Development Corporation Ltd, an undertaking of the road construction department.
Bihar State Road Development Corporation Ltd is the nodal agency for this project. It would be executed in PPP mode with an estimated outlay of Rs 2,000 crore. The suspension bridge is expected to be constructed in six years.
