Kolkata: The CM of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee will do the inauguration of the newly constructed Majerhat Bridge on Thursday. The cable-stayed bridge constructed over the Diamond Harbour Rd. in southern Kolkata (Taratala) was renamed Jai Hind Bridge before its inauguration.
The bridge will finally provide ease to the South Kolkata resident especially of Behala as they were facing huge difficulty in arriving in central Kolkata after their former bridge collapsed in late 2018. Mamata Banerjee renamed the bridge to pay her tribute to honorable Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and she will inaugurate the bridge at the crossing of Diamond Harbour & NR Avenue at 5 pm today.
Earlier the bridge came under controversies when the state government and the Railways fought over the clearance issues but after getting such backlash from the public the bridge got its clearance last week and finally, it is being opened for the general public today.
