From past few months Municipal Corporation Ludhiana and railway officials are in conversation for reconstruction of this bridge asrailway authorities had closed one side of the bridge for heavy vehicles while declaring it unsafe. MC officials had requested railways to increase width of bridge from 7.5 meters to 10.5 meters but railways had refused to do the same earlier.
MCL authorities said that it was a great relief that finally railway officials have agreed to increase the width of bridge before elections because once it would be reconstructed it would serve movement of traffic for next so many years and flow ofthe traffic would increase manifold. The officials asked railways to increase the pacebecause closure of one side of bridge is creating problems for the residents as nowthey are going to give the tenders soon to start the work of the Jagroan Bridge by the month of March. Municipal Corporation Commissioner, Kamalpreet Kaur Brar said that the work is under progress about the Jagraon Bridge for the welfare of public in the city.
