World's tallest rail bridge to be ready by December 2022

Srinagar: The world's largest rail bridge will be ready by the end of 2022. The bridge is being constructed on the Chenab river in Jammu and Kashmir. Indian Railways itself tweeted about its construction work. According to reports, if all goes well, the world's highest rail bridge could start for rail traffic by December 2022. The bridge is being constructed on River Chenab at a cost of Rs.279.49 crore on Katra-Banihal railway section in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir. The bridge is 359 metres above the bottom of the river. The bridge is designed to be 1315 metres long with the main arch.

Though no fixed date of commissioning of the bridge has been indicated by the Railways, if sources are to be believed, the bridge is expected to be ready by December 2022. Tell us that the Railways completed its last arc closure on the bridge in April this year, which has been taken up as a challenge by the Indian Railways as its construction site is in a very difficult hilly area. The bridge is part of the Central Government's ambitious project, Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla rail link. When the bridge is ready, this construction work will be a milestone in Indian engineering history.

Union Minister of State for Railways Darshana Jardosh had recently tweeted about the construction work of the bridge. He had said, "Once fully constructed, the bridge will stand 359 metres above the river bed, making it the highest railway bridge in the world. This will be another engineering miracle of the Indian Railways. '
