Significance of the bridge:
Construction of T-Setu is significant because, state government builds a 3-km long fair-weather road (pedestrian track), every year, on Mahanadi River at a cost of Rs 14- Rs15 lakh for facilitating communication for devotees. This road gets washed away in rainy season. As a result, construction of this bridge was a long-standing demand of locals.
Chief Minister had laid foundation stone T-setu on February 28, 2014. But, due to some technical issues, construction work was delayed and started in 2018.
