New Delhi: Fulfilling the 86-year-old dream, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the strategically important Kosi Rail Mega Bridge in Bihar along the India-Nepal border through video conference on Friday. The 1.9 kilometres long, Kosi Mega Bridge was constructed at a cost of Rs 516 crore. The project was sanctioned in 2003-04.
While inaugurating several railway projects, the prime minister said that the "projects worth Rs 3000 crores, will not only strengthen Bihar's rail network but also strengthen West Bengal and eastern India's rail connectivity."

congratulated the people of Bihar on the inauguration of the project.
"This bridge is of strategic importance along the India-Nepal border. The project was completed during the COVID-19 pandemic where the migrant labour also participated in its completion," a government release said.
The government called the completion of Kosi Rail Mahasetu as a watershed moment in the history of Bihar. Notably, a metre gauge link existed between Nirmali and Bhaptiahi (Saraigarh), however, in 1934 the rail link was washed away. Since then no attempt was made to build a railway bridge due to the meandering nature of Kosi river.

“The dedication of the Kosi Rail Mahasetu is a watershed moment in the history of Bihar and the entire region connecting to the North East. In 1887, a meter gauge link was built in between Nirmali and Bhaptiahi (Saraigarh). During the heavy flood and severe Indo Nepal earthquake in 1934, the rail link was washed away and thereafter due to meandering nature of river Kosi no attempt was made to restore this Rail link for long period,” the government release read.
“The Kosi Mega Bridge line project was sanctioned by Government of India during 2003-04. The Kosi Rail Mahasetu is 1.9 KM long and its construction cost is Rs. 516 Crore. This bridge is of strategic importance along the India-Nepal border. The project was completed during the COVID-Pandemic where the migrant labour also participated in its completion,” it added.
