The third Mandovi bridge will be fully constructed by December 2021. The chief minister, Pramod Sawant revealed that by the end of May, the traffic plan for the Porvorim side of the Atal Setu bridge and side roads work will be completed.
“The Atal Setu was inaugurated two years ago, in January 2019. However, it is still undergoing progress/repairs till date,” said Porvorim MLA Rohan Khaunte. The gap between the bridge and the ramp has widened and become more noticeable on the Panaji side . the arm which connects to Panaji is also incomplete.
To prevent accidents, there is a 50kmph speed restriction on the bridge. The government will request L&T to hotmix the bridge again to get rid of potholes. This is necessary as “the potholes have sharp ridges and are deep and can lead to accidents and vehicular damage,” according to Khaunte.
