RODIC Consultants
Rodic Consultants Pvt. Ltd. will design a new 4.367 km long, 4-lane bridge parallel to the existing Vikramshila Setu on river Ganga at Bhagalpur, Bihar.

The project entails a new 4-lane Bridge from 8.080 km (Design ch 0.000) to 14.309 km (Design ch 6.229) including approach road of 875m on Naugachia side and 987m on Bhagalpur side across river Ganga on newly declared NH-131B connecting NH 31 and NH80 at Bhagalpur. After the completion of the bridge, traffic in Bhagalpur city will get smoother and vehicles will be able to enter from Jharkhand.

For designing this iconic bridge, Rodic Consultants will be using Steel Fibre-Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) technology known for its superior resistance to cracks and crack propagation resulting from repeated dead and live load applications as well as environmental factors. Other advantages of SFRC include reducing concrete slab thickness, reduction in maintenance and repair cost, and reduction in steel and concrete quantities. It also reduces the project costs, leads to easier positioning of joints, and enhances the resistance to impact.

Bringing new technology for bridge construction in this project was decided in a meeting presided by the Minister for Road Transport & Highways, Nitin Gadkari and Minister for Ports, Waterways & Shipping Sarbananda Sonowal, other senior officials of MoRTH & IWAI and Manoj Kumar, Director and other bridge experts of Rodic Consultants. Gadkari suggested the industry to adopt new innovative methods and technology to improve the cost-efficiency and construction quality of infrastructure projects.

Manoj Kumar, Director, Rodic Consultants, said, "Our mission is to work with clients to deliver transformational infrastructure projects using cutting-edge technology and design-led thinking. This bridge will facilitate a seamless movement of cargo and streamline logistic operations. It will be a step forward in ensuring planned infrastructural development, generate employment opportunities and lead to a multiplier effect on the local economy. Rodic Consultants has an exemplary track record of commissioning several new-age bridge projects over Ganga in Bihar, including the iconic 7.6 km long Gangapath Bridge, 9.76 km long New Ganga Six-Lane Extradosed Bridge and Aguwanighat Cable-Stayed Bridge (28.16 km long)."
