A new railway connects Kashmir with the rest of India in December 2021
Kashmir will communicate with the rest of India via the rail network by December 2021, as the government sets a new deadline to complete the world’s highest railway bridge. The railway is expected to be 35 meters higher than the Eiffel Tower. The bridge forms a crucial link along 111 km between Katra and Benihal, and is part of the Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla rail link project.
It is the most challenging task in the history of the 150-year-old railroad. Sanjay Gupta, head of Konkan Railways, said that the world’s highest railway bridge, which connects Kashmir to the rest of the country via the railway, will be completed in December 2021. Gupta said, “Building the bridge is the most challenging part of the Kashmir railway project that has been completed.” Its implementation after independence and after the completion of construction will be an engineering marvel. “
He added that the huge arch-shaped structure, built on hostile territory, would use more than 5,562 tons of steel, and would be 359 meters high over the riverbed. The 1,315 km “engineering marvel” designed to withstand wind speeds of up to 260 km per hour is designed to connect with Kal (Katra) and Kore (Srinagar).
