Kapileshwar over bridge could be opened on Dec 25


The railway over bridge at Kapileshwar could be opened for public from December 25, 2016 as per sources.

It is likely that Minister of Railways Suresh Prabhu could inaugurate this over bridge on December 25 which is also the birthday of Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
This is the very first railway over bridge in Belagavi built after India’s independence.

  1. what about railway station over bridge? So pathetic condition. I hope once Kapileshwar bridge inaugurated railway authority will take wrk on Dharwad railway gate over bridge.

  2. Not sure how this 25 feet wide bridge could handle 2 way traffic, specially when the heavy vehicles will be allowed.

  3. I am glad to note that Kapileshwar flyover is likely to be inaugurated on 25th December. The bridge will smoothen the heavy traffic.
