The Centre has agreed to fund the construction of a bridge over River Feni in South Tripura on National Highway 44, connecting the state to Bangladesh, Tripura chief secretary Yashpal Singh said.
With proposed construction of a a bridge across the Cauvery between two stations, Unniyur and Nerur near Tiruchirapalli or Trichy, at least 35 km distance will be reduced for commuters. The Tamil Nadu government has proposed to construct the bridge. The area residents have expressed happiness over the proposal.
After being put on the backburner for some time, the Signature Bridge will come up over Yamuna river. Now a Chinese company, Jiangsu Steel Structure, a sub-contractor of Gammon-Construtora- Tensacciai JV, has been given the task of fabricating the 15,000 tonne steel pylon and deck girders.
Despite the 20 per cent viability gap funding offered by the government, no private player is ready to bid for the 22-km trans-harbour sea link road project connecting New Mumbai to Sewri. This is because infrastructure developers feel that the Rs 10,000-crore project is unviable as it involves high finance costs and lack of liquidity

However, in cases where the length is more than 34 metre, such structures will have to be constructed on the site against pre-fabricated links and shifted for the project implementation
