The project requires fabricated girders for the bridge sites. Further, the workers are working around the clock in cold weather to complete this project. It may take a while due to the prolonged monsoon season, and the availability of skilled workers and construction materials. Also, the poor accessibility to the areas is a problem. Despite everything, the workers are doing night shifts. Once the railway line is complete and operating, the locals can access long distances across the country.
