The Union minister for road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday said that they were trying to complete the Mumbai - Goa highway including the new Zuari bridge by March end.

The Minister is the state on a two-day visit to review the progress of the highway and the bridge projects.

Both the bridges – Mandovi and Zuari are under construction.

The highway from Pernem to Canacona too is under construction.

The construction has been causing inconvenience to the daily commuters especially near the Zuari and the Mandovi bridges.  

The Union Minister admitted that there were hindrances in the highway and the bridges projects but his ministry, as well as the state government, was trying to find a way out.

He said the hindrances were mainly due to land acquisition, and clearances from forest and environment
