Upparu Bridge is a road bridge across Uppu Aru in eastern Sri Lanka. The bridge was formally opened on 19 October 2011.[1]

The bridge is 315 m (1,033 ft) long.[2] The bridge cost 995 million rupees (US$9 million) and was financed by a soft loan from the French Development Agency's Trincomalee Integrated Infrastructure Project and the Sri Lankan Government's Kilakku Vasantham (Eastern Awakening) programme.[1][3][4] The bridge is part of the A15 Batticaloa-Trincomalee highway.[2] The bridge replaced a ferry boat service that had been transporting people and vehicles across the river.[1][2][5]
