India's first vertical lift railway sea bridge underway in Tamil Nadu

Pamban railway bridge
Indian Railways has started constructing the first pillar in the sea for India’s first vertical lift railway sea bridge. The development work on the vertical lift railway sea bridge is currently going on at Pamban in the state of Tamil Nadu’s Ramanathapuram district. 
This new Pamban railway sea bridge is a first-of-its-kind project for Indian Railways. The new Pamban railway sea bridge will be 2.05 km long and it will link Mandapam on the mainland and Rameswaram at the Pamban island. It will have the nation’s first vertical launch rail section. The overall construction work on this bridge is likely to be completed within the next two years.
The vertical lift railway sea bridge project is being developed by Railway Vikas Nigam (RVNL). 
The original Pamban railway bridge was commissioned in the year 1914 to connect Mandapam to the Rameswaram island situated in the Gulf of Mannar. Till the year 1988, it was the only surface link providing connectivity between the two locations, until a new road bridge was built parallel to the link.
