Even the revision in the cost of construction as sought by the railways had been sent to the Government for approval and the Highways authorities already had an administrative sanction for laying an approach road to the three lane bridge coming up.

Near Hope College, a two-lane narrow old bridge was demolished and a three-lane bridge was constructed along with approach road and the same was being used for traffic flow now.

The other three-lane span works were in full swing and the works had already crossed 50 per cent mark and the remaining phase of work was being speeded up.
