L&T builds India’s longest extra-dosed, cable stay bridge.
On 7th March 2017 the Prime Minister of India inaugurated the country’s longest extra-dosed, cable stay bridge. Built by L&T and measuring 1.34 km, this aesthetically designed 4 lane bridge will ease traffic on the crucial link between Delhi and Mumbai on National Highway 8.
This is the first bridge of its kind in Gujarat. And it also has another distinction: the bridge is greener than many others, built with a commitment to the key principles of sustainability - Recycle, Re-use, Reduce.
At the site, all surplus concrete was used in casting of crash barriers. These barriers are built for the road as well as for the survey reference pillars. A small step in recycling and reusing that has contributed to conservation of resources.
