The construction work on the new Pamban railway bridge at Mandapam is being done in full swing. This bridge will connect Rameswaram to the mainland of Tamil Nadu. The construction work started on Saturday after Bhoomi Pujan.

Old bridged shabby

Speaking to the media, Vishwanathan, an activist, said that the central government plans to build a new bridge as the centuries-old Pamban rail bridge is losing its strength. Currently, the pillars of the bridge are under construction at Mandapam. For the information, let us know that the cost of the project has been estimated to be around 250 crores.

The new bridge will help the railways to run trains at higher speeds, lift more weight, and increase the volume of traffic between Pamban and Rameswaram. The existing Pamban rail bridge, which connects Rameswaram to mainland India, is 105 years old.

New technology is being used.

The task of making this has been entrusted to the Railway Development Corporation. He is using new technology to manufacture it. Two trek rail lines will be laid in it. In this new bridge, such technology is being used for the first time in which a 63 meter long section can be raised along the rail line. Towers will be built for this. This new bridge is being constructed at the height of three meters from the old deck. So that the train can run smoothly.

Old Bridge started in 1914

The old bridge was started on 24 February 1914. Now he was in a terrible condition. Due to this, new bridges are being built. The old bridge will be removed as soon as the new bridge is ready. For information, let us know that in March this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of this bridge.
