    Setu Bharatam Project
    In its unfailing quest to take a quantum leap in infrastructure sector by building infra deficit on fast tracked bases, the Union government unveiled an ambitious Rs 50,800-cr Setu Bharatam project, under which a total of 208 railway crossings will be replaced by rail over bridges (ROBs), said official sources adding that as part of the project, 1,500 bridges of the British era will be overhauled at an estimated expenditure of Rs 30,000cr.

    Altogether, these ROBs and bridges are planned to be completed by 2019 at an estimated cost of Rs 50,800-cr and that the ministry has already launched an Indian Bridge Management System to map 1,50,000 bridges across the country. Till now, an inventory of 50,000 bridges has been prepared while the first cycle of condition survey will be completed by June this year, sources added.
