a2z~ 92 news posts
The world's highest railway bridge that will soar 359 metres above the bed of river Chenab in Jammu and Kashmir will also be 30 metres higher than the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris.
The bridge on the Katra-Banihal railway line at village Kauri in Reasi district is likely to be completed by June, 2019 as more than 66 per cent work has been finished.
The 1.3-kilometre-long bridge is being constructed at a cost of Rs. 1,250 crore, Konkan Railway chief engineer R K Singh said today.
* Good news is, IR have plans to commission and run DMU on 50 km long Katra-Salaal section.
* Kashmir project has earlier moved at snail’s pace, with deadlines extended multiple times.
* But the unprecedented at which IR projects are moving under leadership of Mr. Prabhu, we have reason to believe this claim of IR.
