Rs 77.6 cr Keri-Tiracol ‘bridge’ wasting taxpayer’s money
By Heraldgoa 18-Aug-2019
At present, the project is lying abandoned with no sign of its completion from the government. Estimated to cost Rs 77.6 crore, the project includes construction of a cable-stayed bridge. With absence of connectivity of the two separated parts of Keri-Tiracol, people in both the parts are facing hardship for years while having a ferry service as the only source of daily commute. But most of the time the ferry service remains closed due to frequent breakdowns. Heavy rains during monsoon also force the villagers to travel almost 18 kms to reach Keri side.
Even after being a part of Goa, people of Tiracol have remained backwards from availing services of Goa Government due to lack of direct connectivity and are dependent on Maharashtra Government for basic services such as water and electricity. Though they get these two services from Maharashtra Government, for services such as education, health and emergency, they are completely dependent on Goa.
The incomplete bridge has now left many questions in citizens’ mind as to the future of this project since the bridge is lying as it was for almost five years now. People alleged that without proper planning, government started the construction work and wasted crores of taxpayer’s money.
