Usha Martin’s bridge cables have been used in “Sudama Setu”, a cable suspension bridge over Gomati river in Gujarat. The bridge connects Jagat Mandir of mainland Dwarka with Panchnad or Panchkui Tirth in Gujarat, India.
The bridge is 166 metres long and 2.4 metre wide having capacity of carrying over 30000 people an hour crossing on foot. The bridge is built with 40 mm Locked coil Usha Martin wire ropes as main cables and 36 mm locked coil Usha Martin wire ropes as wind cables.
Sudama Setu is another addition to strong legacy of Usha Martin in bridge cables/structural ropes which covers Vidyasagar Setu in Kolkata, Lions Gate Bridge in Vancouver (Canada), TV Towers at UAE and Naini Bridge in Allahabad (India) to name a few.
