Satpal Maharaj, state tourism minister told The New Indian, “These bridges are old single-lane bridges. Now they are lying unused as we have built new, broader bridges. We have started a process to identify such bridges and soon the work will start. The project will be unique and first in India.”

The state public works department has identified a total of 19 such bridges to date on five National Highways on the Char Dham Routes.

On NH-58 Dehradun-Badrinath-Mana total of seven such bridges have been identified followed by one on NH-94 which covers Rishikesh-Dharasu-Barkot-Phoolchatti in Yamunotri Dham, one at NH-94 Rudraprayag-Gaurikund and 10 on NH-119.

Officials from the state tourism department told that the concept originates from the ‘Bridge Restaurant’ popular in the United States of America and European countries.
