So, this is expected at the northern side following the construction of a new bridge, he said. The project is expected to cost over Rs 13 million excluding VAT provided by the Metropolis. The deadline for the project is June 15. Sabira Construction has been awarded the contract. Each of the two bridges will be 33 meters long and two meters wide.
