MoRTH plans Rs. 938-cr bridge in north-east

    Dhola Sadiya Bridge on Brahmaputra
    In order to boost road infra along Indo-China border belt, the transport ministry has decided to build a new link as the construction of Dhola-Sadiya Bridge on Brahmaputra, which is going to be the longest one in India and it is going to be commissioned by the middle of next year. This bridge will cut down the travel time between the two states by four hours, as the 9.15 kilometer bridge will be 3.55 kilometers longer than the Bandra Worli Sea Link in Mumbai, making it the longest bridge in India. The Rs. 938-cr project will be crucial for defence purposes as it will make it easier for the armed forces to enter Arunachal Pradesh through Assam. Currently, the Army has to cross over to Arunachal Pradesh via Tezpur which takes two days, as there is no direct access near Tinsukia and with the Dhola-Sadiya Bridge becoming operational, connectivity will be significantly improved. It is being prepared for army tanks to pass over it. The bridge connectivity is also important for Arunachal Pradesh as the state does not have a single operational airport whereas China is building multiple air strips on its side of the LAC, claimed official sources.
