    ADB injects $500-mn in bridge project

    Bridge Over Ganga River in Bihar
    In a major infra push in Bihar, Asian Development Bank has recently approved $500 million (Rs. 3,350cr) for constructing a bridge across Ganga River in Bihar. After commissioning, the 9.8 km long road-bridge will be country's longest river-bridge and would provide vital transport links between the northern and southern parts of the state with neighboring Nepal, ADB said in a media statement, adding that the project in question will take about 4 years and is expected to complete by the end of December 2020. The bridge will benefit over nine million or ninety lakh people looking for job opportunities on both sides of the bridge, as it will make it easier for people to move between places, particularly for poorer communities in the north belt wishing to travel to the state capital. The capacity of existing bridges is already stretched, undermining connectivity and access to opportunities for northern areas and the new bridge would serve as an alternate route to the existing Ganga Bridge, which has already begun to deteriorate, they added.
