Yamunanagar, June 22

Radaur MLA Shyam Singh Rana on Saturday laid the foundation stone of a bridge over the Yamuna near Nagli village (Jathlana area) in Yamunanagar district.

This bridge will connect Haryana to Uttar Pradesh and bring relief to farmers of the Jathlana area as their agricultural land falls on the eastern bank of the Yamuna on the Uttar Pradesh side.

It will be the third bridge over the Yamuna in Yamunanagar district. One bridge is at the Hathnikund barrage and the other is in Yamunanagar.

Before laying the foundation stone, the MLA, officers of the local administration and local residents performed pooja.

Rana said that starting the construction work on this bridge was part of the all-round development being carried out by the government in all parts of the state.

Mohinder Singla, Managing Director, Krishna Construction Company, said that his company would construct the bridge. He added that Rs 104 crore would be spent on the construction of the bridge and to pay compensation to farmers for their acquired land. The construction would be completed by June, 2021. “The bridge will be 576 m long and 11 m wide,” said Singla.

Waryam Singh, a farmer of the Jathlana area, said that they had been demanding the construction of a bridge over the Yamuna in this area for long.
