India's Bridges: Route 8 Bridges near Vondh in Gujarat (1)

February 2001 (23.3058, 70.4203) Route 8 Bridges

Just past the town of Vondh, National Highway 8 and the adjacent railway cross a braided river bed. The railway is carried by an undamaged steel girder bridge but the parallel roadway bridge is on shoring while the masonry is repaired. 

A little to the south is a new roadway and a new bridge that was also slightly damaged by the 2001 Bhuj earthquake. Can anyone tell us what is written on the railway bridge abutment?
