Villagers are relived from traveling 60 km because of the construction of Chander bridge on Depalpur- Kesur road. Gulawat bridge, worth Rs 17 crore, is also a great support for the villagers. At present, they have to take boats to get across the backwaters of ashwant Sagar.

It was her efforts that brought several bridges constructed even when there was no provision for bridge construction under the Pradhanmantri Gram Sadak ojana. Mahajan conducts meetings of all construction departments every three to four months.

She also coordinates the possibilities of development and government plans. On Chambal river, where there used to be only one bridge, today has five to six bridges. This has well- connected Indore with rural area of Ujjain and Dhar.
