Cuttack:1/4/18; Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today inaugurated the Cuttack-Nuapatna bridge on the occasion of Utkal Divas.

Within a span of nine months, the western part of Cuttack city gets a second river bridge to connect the satellite city of Abhinav Bidanasi with places located towards the north of it.
