COMMUNICATIONS

BRIDGES

With a net-work of road-communications in the district, a number of river-crossings have bridges. Similar small bridges have been constructed over many nallahs. The construction of bridges has eased the difficulties of transport and communications especially during the monsoon.

One of the most important bridge in the district is the Syke's bridge (Sukwad Pool).

Till 1954 it was the only bridge on the Tapi river. In 1959 as the Tapi overflowed due to torrential rains, some portion of the bridge near Shirpur collapsed and communication on the Bombay-Agra road was completely dislocated.

Sarangkheda bridge.

To overcome the difficulty, a temporary bridge was constructed near Dabhashi on the Tapi river. However, the bridge could not carry the overload of heavy traffic. Ultimately the original bridge was repaired at a cost of Rs. 7 lakhs.

The other bridge on the Tapi river is near Sarangkheda. In the past the area of the district north of the Tapi used to be cut-off from the rest of the district during the monsoon.

The construction of the Sarangkheda bridge on the river Tapi has facilitated communication across the Tapi throughout the year.

The work of the construction of Sarangkheda bridge was undertaken in 1953-54 and the bridge was completed and opened for traffic in 1957.

Other Bridges.

There is yet another bridge constructed on Arunavati river near Shirpur at the cost of Rs. 9 lakhs.

It is proposed to construct a bridge near Shahada on river Gomati. This is estimated to cost Rs. 7 lakhs.

The work on the following bridges was started in March 1962 and completed subsequently:-

(1) Bridge across Raingan river on Surat-Dhulia road;

(2) Bridge at Pimpalner on Panzara river on Vinchur-Pimpalner-Sakri-Nandurbar-Prakashe road;

(3) Submersible bridge on Gomati river on Songir-Dondaicha-Shahada-Khetia road;

(4) Bridges on Vinchur-Pimpalner-Sakri-Nandurbar-Prakashe road. (Roki river bridge and Borai river);

(5) Bridge on Surat-Dhulia road on Panzara river (approach);

(6) Bridge on Surat-Dhulia road on Londhya Nallah;

(7) Bridge on Borai river on Nandurbar-Sakri road (concreting).

Table No. 3 gives the locational and structural particulars of major bridges having length of 100 and above.
