The construction work of a state of the art bridge over Humphrey Strait Creek by the National Highway Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (NH DCL) in Andaman and Nicobar Islands is in its last leg and officials believe that once completed, this bridge will not only be the longest bridge in the Island but will also be a major tourist attraction.

The coming up of this bridge, connecting Baratang Island of Middle Andaman with Kadamtala Island of Middle Andaman, will also provide seamless connectivity on Andaman Trunk Road (NH-4).

As per NHIDCL, as of date, about 87% of work has been completed with almost two spans being bridged in a month’s time.

“With the current progress of work, the much-awaited bridge is likely to be bridged fully by the first week of April 2021. Other ancillary activities like de launching of launching girder, construction of crash barriers and footpaths, etc will take about a month’s time,” sources NHIDCL said.

Apart from this, a beautification scheme has also been conceptualized to add aesthetic value to the bridge. It is expected that the bridge will get completed in all aspects by mid of June 2021.

“On completion, this bridge will not only be the longest bridge on the Island but will also be a major tourist attraction. It will also act as a catalyst for improving the socio-economic condition of the people residing in N&M Andaman,” the sources added.

Meanwhile, Andaman’s Tourism Industry is very hopeful that the bridge will open new dimensions for Andaman Tourism.

“The Journey time to North and Middle Andaman for tourists will reduce considerably bringing more comfort and joy for tourists. More and more tourists would show interest to go to North and Middle Andaman once
this bridge is opened for the public,” Mr. M Vinod, the president of Andaman Association of Tour Operator.
