Goa govt considers dropping China company from Rs 1,400 cr bridge project
The bridge is being built by Dilip Buildcon
The Goa government is considering dropping a Chinese consultancy firm from Rs 1,400 crore eight-lane bridge construction project across the Zuari river in south Goa.
The bridge is being built by Dilip Buildcon with Shanghai Tonggang Bridge Technology providing expertise on several aspects as well as materials.
The government will have to re-examine their import policies and need for expertise. Materials needed for the bridge are presently being imported from China.
The Chinese consultants are expected to arrive as they are supposed to be the experts who are to examine parts of the work. The remaining 35% of the bridge requires material, which for now was to be imported from China.
