Excerpt from Wikipedia

The New Narmada Bridge (or the 3rd Narmada Bridge) is an extra dosed bridge, constructed at Bharuch, India. It is a 1,344 m (4,409 ft) long bridge, built over river Narmada on NH-8. The four-lane bridge is a part of larger project involving six laning of a section of NH-8 between Vadodara and Surat. It runs parallel to Sardar Bridge. It is the extradosed bridge with the longest spans in India, 144 m (472 ft) long.

The bridge was constructed by Larsen & Toubro and Dywidag Systems International (DSI-Bridgecon). The estimated cost of bridge is ₹379 crore (equivalent to ₹428 crore or US$60 million in 2019). This bridge was inaugurated by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 7 March 2017.

A few months later in June 2017, the Arrah–Chhapra Bridge opened and became the longest multi-span extradosed bridge in the world, with a main bridge length of 1,920 m (6,300 ft). Even so, the 3rd Narmada Bridge remains the extradosed bridge with the longest spans in India.
