Hyderabad: Melodic fountains to glamourize Durgam Cheruvu bridge

Hyderabad: The Durgam Cheruvu Cable Bridge in Hyderabad will soon have floating musical fountains on either side, adding even more glamour.

The fountains would perform three shows each day on weekdays between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., and four shows on weekends (Saturday and Sunday) and government holidays.

Each show will run for about 20 minutes, and fountains shows will begin at the same time.

Durgam Cheruvu Bridge is the world’s longest precast segmental span in the concrete extra-dosed cable-stayed bridge.

The work will be done within one month after signing the deal. Along with the bid, the agencies must present design concepts, technical specifications, and a full drawing of the fountain’s arrangement.
