Yoga Day: Anand Mahindra Lauds 1st Train Crossing Chenab Bridge; Says, “Infrastructure Stretching Itself Towards Skies”

Chenab Rail Bridge is one of the most spectacular representations of Indian infrastructure. It also displays the extraordinary execution of constructing a massive bridge at a location that looked too hard to even construct roads because of its geographical features. The best news about the world’s highest railway bridge is that its first trial run between Sangaldan in the Ramban district and Reasi has been completed successfully. Impressed by the architectural brilliance, Anand Mahindra praised the railway project.
