The resolution to name the bridge, Himanshu Shukla Rama Setu which connects Lutukurru and Pasarlapudi villages, was passed unanimously.

This vital infrastructure project, which is expected to be completed withing 15 days, will benefit the habitations of Lutukurru, Komarada, Makannapalem, Adurru, Madakapalli and Gogannamatham under Pasarlapudi Lanka Gram Panchayat of Mamidikuduru mandal.

The construction, costing approximately Rs 1.01 crore was made possible through various grants. The funding included Rs 25 lakh from the MPLADS, Rs 35 lakh from Zilla Parishad funds, and Rs 41.20 lakh from the District Mineral Fund.

Forming a critical link to Amalapuram town, this 75-feet long and 25.6-feet wide bridge is set to transform the daily lives of around 15,000 people belonging to seven villages.
