The bridge was inaugurated by Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar on June 29 this year and was constructed at a cost of Rs 7.78 crore. At the time of inauguration, Tomar had said, “This project will play an important role in connecting Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. It shows our government’s commitment and readiness towards the development of Madhya Pradesh.”
