Bogibeel Bridge: India’s longest rail-cum-road bridge in Assam

Bogibeel Bridge

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated India’s longest rail-cum-road bridge project ‘Bogibeel Bridge’ in Assam on 25 December 2018. The foundation stone for the project was laid in January 1997 by the then Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda. The project had faced several delays and was lying idle till 2007 when finally it was given a National status. The bridge has been built at a cost of Rs 5,820 crore and took nearly 16 years for completion. 
Undertaken by the Northeast Frontier Railway, the 4.94 km long bridge extends over Brahmaputra river and comprises two broad gauge rail tracks and a three-lane road on top. It provides an all-weather connectivity between North and South banks of the river in Eastern Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. The bridge will link the existing railway network on the South and North bank between Dhamalgaon and Tangani stations. The superstructure work was carried out by a joint venture of HCC, DSD Brückenbau and VNR Infrastructures.
Bogibeel Bridge is the first fully-welded superstructure constructed for the first time on the Indian Railways. The bridge comprises 41 spans of 125 mtr each and a superstructure of composite welded steel truss and reinforced concrete. The structure is part of the aspiring infrastructure projects planned by the Indian government to reinforce logistics along the border in Arunachal Pradesh.
