Nivedita Setu


A marvelous addition to the attractions of West Bengal, Nibedita Setu is located over the Hooghly River. Measuring a total of six kilometer, the Setu aims at connecting Kolkata and National Highways no. 34 and 35 with other adjoining states of India. The Setu is also called as Nivedita Bridge.

Sponsored by some of the reputed organizations of foreign and Indian origin, Nibedita Setu was primarily constructed as a toll bridge. Presently, Nivedita Bridge helps in easing out the high traffic pressures in the state of West Bengal, especially during the rush hours.

Some of the prime partners who have a major contribution towards the successful completion of Nibedita Setu are Strategic Alliance Development Corporation of Philippines, Larsen and Toubro, TransAsia Infrastructure Holding and Pacific Alliance Group of California.

Involving a record cost of Rs. 650 crore, Nibedita Setu of West Bengal is expected to perform efficiently in the domain of transport traffic. Since a large number of people commute to Kolkata on a daily basis, almost all the bridges of the state faces huge traffic jams in prime hours. After the establishment of Nibedita Setu in Kolkata, it can be said that the people are expecting a smooth and developed commutation medium.

A joint effort of recognized private bodies, Nibedita Setu in West Bengal will be kept under close supervision so that no cases of damage or transportation mishaps could take place. Also, in regular intervals of time, proper maintenance works will be carried out to keep the constructional quality of the Setu intact.

Nibedita Setu is a shining glory of the dazzling attractions of West Bengal.
