KOCHI: Many things differentiate Goshree bridges from the rest in the state. The main point is that the government instead of spending funds on the project earned quite a lot by way of registration of land in the area.

The bridge is toll-free as the government has not spent funds on it. The Goshree Island development Authority (GIDA) which mobilised `330 crore through sale of 25 hectares of reclaimed land had surplus amount after construction of the bridges.
