Rajamahendravaram: Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has given his nod for the construction of two bridges on Vashishta and Vynateya rivers (Tributaries of Godavari).

Housing Minister Cherukuwada Sri Ranganatha Raju has recently brought the issue to the notice of the Chief Minister.
The bridge across Vasishtha river, a tributary river of Godavari was a long-pending demand.The construction of the bridge across Vasishta river has been pending for nearly 60 years. Though foundation stone was laid for the project, there was no progress in its execution. In the absence of the bridge, nearly 10,000 people are forced everyday to cross the river on a punt.
