Srinagar, Apr 17 (UNI) After a delay of about three decades, the 500 meter Bemina bridge in the outskirts of summer capital, coming up at a cost of Rs 10 crore, was finally ready after undertaking triple shift work following directions by Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad.
District Development Commissioner, Budgam, Khawaja Farooq Ahmad Renzu who inspected progress was informed that the bridge is ready and would be thrown open to traffic shortly.
The bridge having 500 meter length has emerged as one of the palatial bridges of Valley and is the largest one in Srinagar.
The project report of the bridge was prepared during 80's and its foundation was laid in 1998. However, due to prevailing situation, work on this vital bridge would not be executed.
During last 11 months major portion of the bridge was completed and Mr Renzu personally monitored execution of work for speedy completion in triple shifts.
The bridge will provide vital and shortest link between Srinagar and Budgam districts.
