Mahatma Gandhi Setu Rehabilitation

Mahatma Gandhi Setu Rehabilitation

The Mahatma Gandhi Setu (also known as Gandhi Setu or Ganga Setu) is a bridge that spans the Ganges River in Bihar, India, and connects Patna and Hajipur. It is India’s third-longest river bridge, with a length of 5,750 meters.

The bridge had experienced considerable traffic congestion in recent decades as a result of an increase in the number of cars crossing it, which had caused it to operate at capacity and overburden the structure. It required replacement of the concrete superstructure with steel framework.

Dextra participated in this renovation project by supplying RepairGrip couplers for the connection of old pier and new pier caps.

Fully threaded bars were also provided for various applications during the demolition of the old superstructure.

The renovated western flank was opened to public on July 31, 2020.
