Bridges in India

We have built numerous bridges to handle all the obstacles laid down by the rivers, valley, or road. India has probably the best construction of bridges above water . It increases the income when they join two places that supplement each other financially.

Bhupen Hazarika Setu is the longest(9.15 Km long) bridge in India that provide link to Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura and Barak valley region of Assam and also reduce the time and distance to travel to Bhutan and Bangladeh.

The Central government has approved the construction of the Dhubri-Phulbari bridge over the Brahmaputra. This 19.8-km-long bridge will replace the 9.1-km-long Bhupen Hazarika Setu bridge and will become India’s longest bridge when completed. The project has a total cost of about Rs 5,000 crore and target date for completion is September 2028. The bridge will reduce the distance from 205 km to 19 km only and time from 6 hrs to 20 minutes. Have a look at the list of Bridges in India.
