Brahmaputra is one of the longest river in Asia with a total length of 2880 km & out of which 920km (approx.) lie in India. The New Brahmaputra Bridge @ Tezpur is one of the most challenging one, in the attempt to bridge the river Brahmaputra once again. In India the Brahmaputra is the only river which had not been bridged till the end of 1962 along in its entire length. Bridging river Brahmaputra has always been a challenging task. The river has been traditionally considered extremely difficult to bridging due to its ferocious & unpredictable behavior coupled with Flash Floods & high current/ turbulence, wide spread erosion of the banks, change in island configuration.
