If it becomes eight lane, it will be the second in the city. A similar bridge is on the Super Corridor.
Two lanes will have to be built on both sides: IDA will not have to put in much effort in building the bridge. Four lanes have already been built, the remaining vacant areas Two more lanes will have to be built on both sides. While making the four lane, IDA had acquired the land to take eight. IDA schemes are implemented there so there is no problem of land. Even while making the metro project, IDA had given information about its eight lane plan to the Metro Corporation, accordingly the metro has also built its own bridges by leaving the eight lane bridge. IDA is currently under contract with Path India.
