On December 29, 2022, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari will inaugurate Goa’s new Zuari bridge, a link between North and South Goa. Gadkari shared a video of the new bridge on Twitter, calling it an ‘Architectural Marvel’ as it is the second largest cable-stayed bridge in India. Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant announced that people could walk on the new structure and admire it before the inauguration. Numerous revellers gathered at the new bridge after it was opened for pedestrians, as the old bridge witnessed a huge traffic jam, with vehicles caught in the congestion for more than three hours. Hundreds of people thronged the new Zuari bridge at the same time to take selfies, and local performers were also seen. Lakhs of people had arrived in the coastal state to celebrate the New Year, adding to the number of vehicles on the road and worsening the situation.
