The Indian Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, will be inaugurating the Bogibeel Bridge later this year. This bridge is a Road-Rail Bridge and is the longest bridge being made in India till now.

Whats even more interesting is the fact that it is also the second largest Road-Rail bridge in Asia.

But before we talk more about this bridge, you might be wondering - what is a Road-Rail bridge.

Let's talk about that first!

Road-Rail Bridge

A Road-Rail bridge, as the name literally suggests, is a bridge which allows both rail passage as well as road passage.

In simpler terms, we can say that a Road-Rail bridge is a multi-function bridge. It has 2 levels. On one level there is a rail track which allows trains to pass. And the other level has roads for regular vehicular travels.

Such types of bridges are made where it is not possible to create separate parallel bridges for both roads and train tracks.

Bogibeel Bridge, Assam

The Bogibeel bridge is a Road-Rail bridge which will connect Dibrugarh in Assam to Pasighat in Arunachal Pradesh.

It has been under construction since 2002 and is expected to finish this year. It has been built over river Brahmaputra.
It has 3 lane roads on top and double line railway track below. This bridge will be a big boon for Indian Logistics as it will help in connecting Arunachal Pradesh better with Rest of India. 

With constant tensions between India and China near Arunachal Pradesh, this bridge will prove to be a boon for India in times of need. 

It can even help boost tourism into the state of Arunachal Pradesh.
