The bridge consists of two spans reaching from the coast of Kanyakumari to the island destinations Thiruvalluvar Statue and Vivekananda Rock Memorial. The bridge embodies a poetic approach to its destinations that is singular, sinuous and curvaceous.

  • Main curved spans supporting the deck comprise a Reinforced Concrete orthotropic triangular cross section.
  • Cultural Elements in the Design enclosing the walkway are formed from Fibre Reinforced Polymers.
  • Feature Lighting


Novare Design in Joint Venture with Monk Mackenzie have developed a design for a Pedestrian Bridge connecting the shore to Thiruvalluvar Statue and from the Statue to Vivekananda Rock Memorial.

First bridge is 400m long with 20 spans of 20m each and the following one is approximately 100m long with 5 spans of 20m each.
