Mangalore, Apr 22: The hanging foot bridge between Sultan Battery and Tannirbavi, if constructed as per the revised proposal would add a new record to the city’s glory.

It would turn out to be largest and widest in the world. The revised proposal was sent to the state government by the Nirmithi Kendra. 

The state government had already approved Rs 5 crore for the construction of a single lane cable suspension hanging bridge for pedestrians across Phalguni River to connect Sultan Battery and Tannirbavi.

The foundation stone for the project was laid by CM B S Yeddyurappa, but the work is still pending as the earlier design was revised and is awaiting nod from the state government.
 
According to the earlier proposal, the breadth was fixed to 5 feet that was increased to 10 feet in the revised version and project cost is estimated to be Rs 12 crore.

The revised version of hanging bridge is unique with regard to dimension and shape among other bridges in the world.  While the total length of the bridge will be around 500 metres, 250 metres of it will be unsupported. The cables of 120 millimetres will be used in executing the works.

This hanging bridge, when built is expected to boost the tourism potential.

    One of the Classic Examples for Hanging Bridge is one that is Built in British Era which is in Gokak.
    Even here is a Small Hydro Power Plant , which caters the Need of Gokakmills.
    Worth watching the Spectacular view of the Water Fall from the Bridge during Rainy Season..
    May be this one in Our Kudla would be a Master piece..built in our Era...

    This is a long time demand of the poor locals living in the small island be it Benggre/Thannirbavi they have to either drive the long way from thanneerbavi-kuloor to Mangalore or depend on the boat service,which is not that easy for school kids or college students specially during Monsoon when the weather is bad. All concerned should act soon and see to it that this project is done at the earliest possible.All the best.

    It is possible only and if our leaders are sincere, honest, good hearted, and working for nation. But do we have such leader in Mangalore? At present we do NOT have any such capable leader and I do NOT know in future because our people are brain washed with certain evil thoughts by our great leaders and politicians.

    Are we done with Fly overs in and around Mangalore before we start hanging bridge? Those haphazard flyovers were nightmares to MangaloreansThis reminds me Muddana Kavi's quotes" hallilladavanige............."Before any new venture is taken up let us not forget that Mangalore needs decent foot path & parking lots.

    This type of bridge is called CABLE SUPPORTED bridge and not hanging bridge as said.

    There are lot of cable supproted bridges like the one in San Francisco which is used by dpedestrians & Cars.

    I feel the footbridge can be kept under wraps for the time being.There are other more important jobs that need urgent attention and are crying for want of funds.Residents of shivbagh and also other inner areas of Mangalore are shouting themselves hoarse for want of motarable roads but all their pleas are on deaf ears.
    If these funds are diverted to develop the roads and also the other tourist areas of mangalore it will benifit more
