Work on the bridge picked up speed after chief minister Manohar Parrikar visited the site mid-December 2018, he said, adding that most of the works have been completed, including partial painting, and the rest of the work will be completed within a short span.Two and three-wheeler vehicles will not be allowed on the third Mandovi bridge.
Among the older bridges, the newer one will serve as entry to the city while the oldest will serve as exit.“The day the third bridge is commissioned, the other two bridges will be converted into one ways,” he said.
