This was informed by Mangaluru South MLA JR Lobo  while addressing reporters here. “I wanted to revive the much awaited suspension bridge project, the fate of which was hanging fire for want of grants since the past few years,” he said.

The project was initiated in 2006,  and Rs one crore was released in 2008. Though the project commenced  in 2012 it soon was suspended for want of funds.
