He said the bridge will be vital for the Northeast as it will boost economic growth of Assam and the adjoining states.

�It will reduce travel time from Guwahati to North Guwahati to just 10 minutes, as against 45-60 minutes that it takes to travel now. With the AIIMs coming up and also a new medical college in the city, you can imagine the developments that will take place in the next five years,� he said.
