Indias longest rail-cum-road bridge

The Bogibeel bridge on the Brahmaputra river in upper Assam, which is India┬┤s longest rail-cum-road bridge, will be commissioned in June 2017, according to sources from the Northeast Frontier Railway.

Construction of the 4.950 km bridge is underway as per schedule. The bridge that will connect Dibrugarh on the south with Dhemaji on the north, will have 39 girders of 125 m and two girders of 33 m span, and will be the fourth across the Brahmaputra. While all the girders are likely to be completed by March 2017, it would take a few months more for final commissioning of the bridge. The Bogibeel bridge incorporates, apart from the main bridge, a guide bund each on the north and south banks, several dykes, a road network of 30 km, a railway network of 74 km and six new railway stations.
