A high-level meeting chaired by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, which took the decision here on Tuesday, authorised the Public Works Department (PWD) to finalise the design and other technical details of the bridge within three months. The estimated cost of Rs. 30 crore of the new bridge will be shared by the Government, the Port Trust and the Indian Navy.
