Kolkata: The work of laying bitumen on the Majerhat bridge in Kolkata is on full swing and will be completed by this week, setting the stage for a load testing, the final step before it is thrown open, said a senior PWD official.

“As soon as the laying of bitumen is over, we will seek clearance from the Railway authorities to conduct the load test on the bridge,” the official said, as quoted by Millennium Post.

A portion of the earlier bridge, connecting the city to Behala, had collapsed on September 4, 2018, killing two.

After the horrific incident, the entire structure on Diamond Harbour Road was demolished to build the new cable-stayed bridge.

The work of painting the bridge, in blue and white, has already begun and lights have been installed.

As per reports, eighty-four cables were brought from Switzerland to hold the 260m deck slab of the bridge.

Once completed, the bridge will be the third cable-stayed bridge after Vidyasagar Setu and Nivedita Setu.
