Indian Railways Will Soon Complete The Building Of The World’s Highest Railway Bridge In Jammu & Kashmir!
It is always a delight to see such marvellous establishments in our country. And with the inauguration of this bridge in the upcoming future, everything is going to be grand. The construction of the ‘Anji Khad Bridge’ in the Kauri village of Reasi in Jammu and Kashmir is almost nearing the end. A very interesting fact about the complete bridge is that it is going to be 35 metre higher than the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris. Indian Railways is working on this remarkable 1.315 km long bridge. Northern Railways and Konkan Railway Corporation Limited worked in deciding the design of the engineering milestone.

It Is A Massive Construction!
This cable-stayed bridge is getting constructed at a height of 359 metre. It will fall on the Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla Rail Link section in Jammu & Kashmir and will connect Katra and Reasi district. This project is undoubtedly one of the most challenging and humongous projects of the Indian railways recently. It is India’s first ever cable-stayed bridge for Indian railways. In fact, it made its name for being the world’s 7th largest arching bridge without any pillars of support. Though, it has support only on both sides of the river.

The construction of the Chenab railway bridge used about 30,350 metric ton of steel. As of now, the construction process used 10,620 metric ton of steel for the arch and 14,504 metric ton of steel for the bridge deck. The larger-than-life development and such grandeur will truly make the Anji Khad Bridge an architectural marvel.
