ENGINEERING INNOVATION IN INDIA

India’s Longest Bridge Inaugurated in Assam

Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated India’s longest bridge last month, over the Lohit in Assam, and named it after singer Bhupen Hazarika. The bridge has strategic significance since it is near Anini, 100km from China border, and can withstand the weight of a 60-tonne battle tank. India’s longest bridge, spans 9.3 km across the Brahmaputra, promising to turn the north-east into a showpiece of infrastructure development.The road bridge, connecting Dhola in Arunachal Pradesh to Sadiya in Assam, has been built at a cost of Rs2,056 crore by the ministry of road transport and highways.The government was now keen to develop inland waterways on the Brahmaputra river. The government plans to spend money on projects including power, optical fibre network structures, road and railways to ensure that the north-east is connected with all parts of India.Built by Navayuga Engineering Co. Ltd, the Dhola-Sadiya bridge is 3.55 km longer than the sea link over the Mahim Bay in Mumbai. It has strategic significance as it’s near Anini, 100 km from the China border.The bridge will reduce the distance by 165 km, saving six hours of travel time and fuel worth Rs10 lakh per day in the region.
