Dodhara Bridge

The Dodhara Chandani Bridge is a sequence of four suspension bridges with eight pylons, which are anchored to large anchor blocks on both banks as well as three common anchor blocks in the river bed. The lands between the 32.72-metre-high (107.3 ft) pylons have a wingspan of 225.40 m, the webs between the anchors and the pylons have a wingspan of almost 70 meters. The bridge segments are curved slightly upwards. The bridge is a total length of 1452.96 m plus of approximately 20 m long anchor blocks on the banks.

The bridge consists of the steel pylons and essentially of wire ropes. The hangers are thin metal rods, which are connected to each other with eyes. The 1.60-metre-wide (5.2 ft) bridge deck is a sturdy metal grille. On both sides serve ropes as handrails, which are connected by wire mesh with the bridge deck. Diagonal cables between the railings and the underlying longitudinal cables are used for stiffening, as well as some stay cables of the pylons for the bridge deck. Side, anchored in the riverbed ropes dampen fluctuations.

The bridge in the Mahakali Zone Management connects the Nepalese territories near Indo-Nepal border cut off by the river.
