Hyderabad, Sep 25 (PTI): The cable stay bridge

built by Larsen & Toubro (L & T) across Durgam Cheruvu Lake

here was inaugurated by Telangana Minister K T Rama Rao in

the presence of Union Minister G Kishan Reddy.

A unique aspect of this bridge is that it has the

worlds longest precast segmental span of 233.85 m in

concrete for a cable stay bridge, a press release from L & T

said.

"We have constructed it despite the extremely

challenging conditions and difficult terrain that we

encountered and are happy that we could deliver the project

in time even during these unprecedented times of the

pandemic," said S V Desai, whole-time director and senior

executive vice-president (Civil Infrastructure), Larsen &

Toubro.

Constructed under Telanganas Strategic Road

Development Programme, the bridge would ease traffic flow

towards HITEC City reducing commute time from Jubilee Hills

to Madhapur from 30 to a mere 10 minutes and the distance

from Mind Space to Jubilee Hills by 2 km, the release said.

Our association with this young state of Telangana has

been rich and we are proud to have delivered yet another

pearl to the City of Pearls," said S N Subrahmanyan, Chief

Executive Officer and Managing Director, L&T.

The bridge is 435 metres long, including the approaches at

both ends, 25.8 m wide with a total of 52 stay cables.

The approach viaduct and solid ramps are 309.8 m long with

1.8 m wide footpaths on both the sides.

As much as 26,600 cubic metres of concrete, 4,800 tonnes of

steel and 287 tonnes of stay-cables were used in its

construction.

While the cables were procured from Germany, everything

else is sourced from India making it an example of the Make

in India movement, the release said. PTI GDK
