  1. Congratulations to both the Contractor and the Authorities for a rare project that has been completed on (in this case ‘before’) time. We as citizens should take note of this feat which should encourage the authorities to make this as a norm. It prevents cost over-run and more importantly serves the purpose…of serving the people.
    Request all citizens to follow traffic rules on the new bridge.

  2. We do appreciate the project but if you see the design there is a huge turn which will cause accidents as the youngsters will get free road and night riders with full speed will have to be careful and cautious at the steep curve

  3. The neon/ugly stripes look like a village man’s shorts. Smart City with historical names and village look and feel. It was far more modern and considered a city when growing up.Good job in completing it so soon – hope the steep height does not cause accidents.
