BENGALURU: The Bengaluru Development Authority (BDA) on Monday invited suggestions from citizens on the proposed six-lane steel bridge that will connect Basaveshwara Circle to Hebbal grade separator.
The BDA said Larsen and Tubro and Navayuga Engineering Company Ltd have participated in the tender process and so far, Larsen and Tubro has quoted the lowest rates. However, the tender is yet to be finalized, the agency said. Passing through Mehkri Circle, the bridge will be constructed using a new technology and will be made of steel and concrete as this has been found to be appropriate for sustainable development and pollution-free environment, it said.
BDA said the process could be completed in a comparatively less time.
According to the Institute For Steel Development and Growth, an associate organization of the directorate of steels, government of India, building a steel bridge will ensure minimum sound pollution in surrounding areas. Before undertaking the project, the BDA prepared the estimates based on item rates approved by the PWD for 2014-15 and obtained administrative and technical sanction for Rs 1,350 crore.
