In a significant boost to West Bengal’s infrastructure, a substantial financial allocation of ₹304.82 Cr has been approved for the construction of two pivotal bridges. These infrastructural marvels, spanning the River Kangshabati and the River Shilabati, are poised to redefine connectivity in the Paschim Medinipur district.

Bridging Distances: The River Kangshabati Bridge

The first jewel in this infrastructural crown is the bridge over the River Kangshabati. With an impressive length of 1.48 km, this structure is designed to accommodate a 4-lane configuration. This engineering marvel promises to significantly reduce travel time and enhance connectivity, benefitting both commuters and the local economy.

Navigating Waters: The River Shilabati Bridge

Complementing the River Kangshabati Bridge is the equally crucial structure over the River Shilabati. Spanning 0.900 km, this bridge mirrors its counterpart with a 4-lane configuration. As these bridges align along National Highway-60 (formerly NH-14), they promise to be instrumental in fortifying the transportation network in the region.

Methodical Execution: EPC Mode and Annual Plan 2023-24

The construction of these key bridges is set to be executed under the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) mode. This strategic approach ensures a comprehensive and efficient development process, emphasizing quality and timely completion. Furthermore, these projects fall within the ambit of the Annual Plan for the fiscal year 2023-24, underscoring the state’s commitment to continuous infrastructural enhancement.

The Paschim Medinipur district is poised for transformative growth with the introduction of these bridges. Enhanced connectivity opens up new possibilities for tourism, trade, and cultural exchange, creating a ripple effect that reaches far beyond the immediate vicinity of the bridge sites.
