Sone River: Bihar

Patna: while laying the foundation stone of a four-lane bridge over river Sone which will link Daudnagar in Aurangabad with Nasriganj in Rohtas, CM Nitish Kumar on Sunday said that during the past seven years about 12,000 bridges and culverts have been constructed of which Bihar Rajya Pul Nirman Nigam (BRPNNL). Although the Nigam was established in 1975 and in 30 years it could build only 375 bridges. The bridge will shorten the distance as on Daudnagar side it will be linked to NH- 98 and on Nasriganj side with state highway 15 thus linking Magadh to Bhojpur, while vehicles going towards Kolkata can cross the bridge and continue journey on GT Road. Also the distance between Bodh Gaya and Kushinagar will be minimized and the bridge will help develop the Buddhist circuit as well as tourism sector.

“Before 2005, on both sides of Sone river there had been a reign of terror due to massacres. But today massacres are history and people talk about development. The need is to maintain this social peace for more prosperity,” the CM said.

Nitish said more bridges are under construction on Ganga, Gandak and Kosi rivers. With a bridge between Baluaha Ghat and Gandaul over Kosi in Saharsa district, the distance between Saharsa and Darbhanga has been reduced. He said on August 15, 2013, he had promised to build three mega bridges. The work on one of them started on Saturday at Gopalganj and another’s foundation stone was laid on Sunday in Aurangabad. The work on third bridge between Khagaria and Sultanganj will also start soon.

“I had set a target that people from any corner of the state should reach the state capital by road in not more than six hours and we have achieved that target’ said the CM. Another milestone in road sector is the plan to link all the habitations having 250 population with road and work has started with a fund of Rs 1,400 crore.
