Parthala Bridge, a much-anticipated infrastructure project connecting Noida and Greater Noida West, has finally been inaugurated by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on June 25. The bridge, worth approximately Rs 84 crore, is a cable-style structure spanning 650 meters, featuring a total of 28 cables on both sides. This makes it the first of its kind in Noida.
The construction of Parthala Bridge has been a relief for commuters who have been facing severe traffic congestion while traveling towards Gaur City and Greater Noida West. The project, which took over two years to complete, had faced multiple deadline extensions. However, its opening marks a significant improvement in transportation efficiency for the region.
One of the key advantages of Parthala Bridge is its potential to save commuters between 30 to 45 minutes of travel time. With its six-lane road, 220 girders, and three pillars, the bridge is well-equipped to handle a substantial volume of traffic. It serves as a crucial link for commuters coming from Noida Sector 72, Noida Sector 119, Noida Sector 120, and Noida Sector 122, providing them with a smooth route to Greater Noida West.
In terms of technology, the bridge is equipped with sensors, ensuring optimal safety and functionality. Each cable supporting the bridge is connected to a sensor, enhancing structural monitoring and maintenance capabilities.
The significance of Parthala Bridge extends beyond its role in reducing traffic congestion. Frustrated commuters had even resorted to taking matters into their own hands by opening the bridge themselves prior to its official inauguration. A video capturing this incident had gone viral on social media, highlighting the urgent need for improved transportation infrastructure.
Additionally, Chief Minister Adityanath used this opportunity to inaugurate and lay the foundation stone for 124 development projects under the Noida and Greater Noida Industrial Development authorities. These projects, amounting to over Rs 1,700 crore, aim to further enhance the overall development and growth of the region.
The opening of Parthala Bridge brings great relief to commuters in Noida, facilitating smoother and more efficient travel between Noida and Greater Noida West. With its modern design, advanced technology, and potential to reduce travel time significantly, the bridge is poised to play a pivotal role in addressing traffic congestion and enhancing connectivity in the area.
