Odisha CM Dedicates State’s Longest Bridge To The Nation:- Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik dedicated the state’s longest bridge to the nation and named it after Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
The bridge covering a distance of 2.88 km, over the river Kathajodi, will connect the state capital of Bhubaneswar with Cuttack, thus reducing the distance between the two cities by 12 km.
“It will usher in a new era in the twin city links by reducing distance and commuting time for the citizens. It will stand as a symbol of our constant efforts towards development of modern infrastructure for growth and progress of the state and our people,” Patnaik said.
Patnaik said “he was delighted to name the state’s longest bridge after Netaji who was born and brought up in Cuttack.”
The completion missed the deadline by over three years, although the construction work of the bridge started after Patnaik laid foundation in February, 2011.
