Two railway bridges in Bihar could be opened in 3 months: Sinha

Two rail-cum-road bridges over the Ganga in Bihar could be made operational in three months if the state government provides approach roads, Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha said here on Sunday.

“The rail-cum-road bridges at Digha and Munger are ready. They could be made operational in three months if the state government provides approach roads,” Sinha said. Stating that railways has sought assistance from the chief minister in this regard but was yet to hear from him, Sinha said delay in getting the approach roads would subsequently delay opening of the bridges that would connect north and south Bihar.

He was interacting with reporters during inspection of infrastructure at Darbhanga station.
The two bridges at Digha and Munger are vital as the three-decade-old Mahatma Gandhi Setu over the Ganga in Patna is in precarious condition after a few of its spans were damaged over the last few years due to various reasons. It is still open to traffic with continuous repairs going on.
