Tata Steel dedicates bridge

Bhubaneswar, May 14: With an objective to provide better commuting facility to the residents of Keth Hutting and nearby villages, Tata Steel dedicated a bridge over river Suna connecting Bichakundi with Keth Hutting on Saturday.

 Minakshi Mahanta, MLA, Champua graced the occasion as Chief Guest along with Atul Kumar Bhatnagar, General Manager (OMQ Division), Tata Steel, Saroj Kumar Banerjee, Chief (Joda), Tata Steel and Rajesh Kumar, Chief, Tata Steel.

The construction of the 91 feet long and 12 feet wide bridge allowing movement of light motor vehicles was completed in a record time of four months. To enhance the safety standard of the bridge technical interventions like RCC (Reinforced cement concrete) pillars have been used.

Apart from this, to promote sustainability, Tata Steel Foundation (TSF), the CSR arm of the company, has also installed two solar-powered streetlights near the bridge that will enable the villagers to safely commute at night.

 More than 10, 000 people residing in Bhuiyan Roida, Malda, Loidapada, Jalahari, Jurudih and Guali panchayats along with Joda Municipality will be benefitted by the bridge which also connects Keonjhar district with Sundargarh district.
