The new bridge in river Subernarekha linking Sonari with Dobo in the adjoining Seraikela-Kharsawan district has been up at a cost of Rs 41 crores. The foundation stone for the ambitious project was laid by chief minister Raghubar Das, leading the Kolkata-based construction agency, Royal InfratechPvt Ltd to go ahead with the construction work.
With the bridge becoming operational, the distance between Chandil from Jamshedpur has reduced by about 30 kms as the commuters will not have to go to Chandil — the route for going to Ranchi — via Dimna Chowk. About 10,000 vehicles, including trucks, trailers and car move toward Chandil from Jamshedpur via Dimna Chowk on the NH-33 for the destination like Chandil, Chowka and Ranchi beside other places in Bihar.
“As per the situation and understanding the importance of safety of the commuters, we need a TOP at the Sonari side urgently. We had, therefore, requested Tata Steel for setting up a three-room facility for a new TOP there at Domuhani,” said an official.
