Hyderabad: By March 2019, Hyderabad will be having the India’s largest Cable bridge as the Durgam Cheruvu Cable bridge work is progressing swiftly. The 144-metre cable bridge in the Baruch district of Gujarat is currently the largest.

The construction of the 754.38 metre bridge has been taken up at a cost of Rs 184 crores. About 13 foundations have been opened and construction of 12 pillars has been completed.

 

With the completion of the bridge, the traffic from Madhapur and Jubilee Hills would be seamless and it is set to become a great tourist destination, as it is known to be the first Hyderabad hanging bridge with colorful power outages.

The first segment re-infrastructure tasks in the main bridge are in progress. Stay cables were specially brought from Austria. While bridge builder works and track beam fabrication works are in progress, the cable bridge precast works are going on in Kondapur, according to the GHMC commissioner Dr B. Janardhan Reddy who said, “The main bridges with a length of 25 meters are 6.5 meters high in pre-casting construction in Kondapur”
