This bridge is located 359 meters above the river level. Giving information about this on Tuesday, the Railways said, another milestone in the USBRL project! Track laying work has started on the Chenab Bridge. Once completed, this bridge will open new possibilities for remote areas of Jammu and Kashmir.

taller than the Eiffel Tower in Paris

According to railway officials, the length of this bridge is 1.3 km, which is 35 meters higher than the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Construction work on the bridge started in 2004 but was postponed in 2008-09 to consider the safety aspect of rail passengers in view of frequent strong winds in the area. Once the works are completed, the bridge will also be able to withstand winds of up to 260 km/h and will have a useful life of 120 years. The 111 km long Katra-Banihal railway section is under construction. This is the most challenging part, since 97.34 km of this line goes through tunnels. It has mountains, slopes and earthquake sensitive areas from Jammu to Baramulla. For this reason, 27 major bridges and 10 minor bridges must be built there. Of this, 21 majors are ready. The Chenab Bridge is also located in this section.

203 km of new roads had to be built to reach construction sites in remote areas. An official said work has been completed on 162.6km of the 163.88km (including tunnels) in the Katra-Banihal section. And of 117.7 km, 31.3 km of track are ready. India’s longest escape tunnel, which is 12.89 km long on the Banihal-Katra railway line, was completed in December. In the year 1905, the then Maharaja of Kashmir announced the laying of a railway linking Srinagar with Jammu via the Mughal Road. After the initial work, the project got stuck. After that, once again, the work was started in March 1995 at a cost of Rs 2,500 crores and then in the year 2002, the Vajpayee government declared it a national project, then its cost became 6,000 crores. of rupees. However, today the cost of this project has risen to Rs 27,949 crore.

The laying of the line was plagued by geographical problems. Overcoming all this, now this network has become ready. This project is running after a delay of 20 years. With the commissioning of this railway line, a revolutionary change will take place in the economy of Kashmir. With the operation of this train, tourists from the country will be able to go to Kashmir by train. After this, fruits like Kashmiri apples will be easily transported to the rest of the country. South India can be directly connected to Kashmir. It will increase the economic output of the local economy.
