Designed to attract, Mandovi bridge gets its first cables

Five cables will be stretched on either side of each of the four towers grounded in the river water.  
The cables, which form the main design attraction of the under-construction second largest cable-stayed bridge in India, will run parallel to each other and ultimately form a harp-like pattern supporting the 150 mts span over Mandovi waters, of the total 660 mts-long bridge.   
Segments 3, 5, 9, 11 and 13 have been marked for stretching and grounding cables on either side of towers.   
The pre-stressed cables running stitching spans measuring 50 mts and the cables from the pylons together comprise the extradosed structure of the bridge. The cable-stayed tech is the latest, longer-lasting tech with aesthetic values in creation of the bridge.
