Tallest Girder Rail Bridge

World's Tallest Girder Rail Bridge
Yes, this bridge is in India which is the tallest girder rail bridge. This Bridge is a part of the railway line project which connects the 7 Sisters States to Main Land India (Basically intrastate link). This railway project will have the Tallest Girder Rail Bridge. This will be 141 meters tall and called Bridge number 164. This rail bridge will take over Europe's Mala-Rijeka which was 139 meters tall.
This bridge is estimated to complete in 2020 but due to current crises and pandemic will shift in 2021 maybe. The total cost is estimated to 400 crores to just bridge where the whole project is 13000 crore project. The project is so important that the Government had declared it a national project. This will connect the capital of Manipur, Imphal to Jiribam which will connect the other states such as Assam and then mail line to India.
The SAIL (Steel Authority of India Limited) got huge work for production of Girders and steel sections to the site., The site was not that suitable for work in and hence the Government had sent 1300 security personals, as there was looting of project materials and some times attack the working Engineers. The work started in 2018 and has been in great work.
The project has the full support of the Government as it will connect the Easternmost part of India.
