PM Modi Inaugurated Bogibeel Bridge over Brahmaputra

 

Guwahati: Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on Tuesday inaugurated the country’s longest rail-cum-road bridge in Bogibeel over the Brahmaputra river in Assam. 
 
Inaugurating the bridge that connects Dhemaji and Dibrugarh, Modi and his cavalcade took a ride, stopping in the middle and waving at thousands of people waiting on both sides. 
 
“It would greatly enhance ease of living in this region,” Modi said adding that this bridge had been a dream for the people of this region for generations. 
 
The Prime Minister said that while only three bridges were built over the Brahmaputra in the last 60-70 years, three bridges have been completed in the last four-and-a-half years alone. 
 
Built at an estimated cost of over Rs 5,000 crore, the bridge is expected to help over five million people living in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh and significantly enhance India’s defence capability by ensuring faster movement of troops and supplies to the eastern border with China. 
 
The foundation stone for the bridge was laid by former prime minister H.D. Devegowda in 1997. The construction works started only in 2002 when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the Prime Minister. 
 
The bridge, situated 17 km downstream of Dibrugarh spans the Brahmaputra and connects the town in the south to Dhemaji to the river’s north.
