Public Works Department Minister Churchill Alemao after inspecting the work on the Assolna-Cavelossim bridge across River Sal said it will be commissioned by February next year.
Churchill along with Principal Chief Engineer J S S Rego and other senior officials of PWD inspected the work on the Rs. 49.1 crore bridge where nearly 53 per cent of the work is completed.
The bridge has 20 spans each 25 metres long and also two navigational spans which admeasure 60 metres. Although the work is going on in full swing, it was hampered due to the poor quality of the soil for which technical expertise was sought.
