india's longest bridge

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on the occasion of third anniversary of his government, will inaugurate a number of projects on Friday, including the country’s longest bridge ‘DHOLA-SADIYA Bridge in Assam.

The Dhola-Sadiya Bridge is built over the river Lohit, which is a tributary of the Brahmaputra. It links Dhola in Assam to Sadiya in Arunachal Pradesh.

The 9.15-km-long Dhola-Sadiya bridge will reduce the travel time between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh from six hours to just one hour as the distance will shrink by 165 km. The bridge is 3.55 kilometres longer than the Bandra-Worli Sea Link in Mumbai.

“This is one of the most important infrastructure projects in our nation,” Mr. Modi had said.

After inaugurating the Rs. 2,056 crore bridge at Sadia in Assam’s Tinsukia district, Mr. Modi walked a short distance over it.

Later on Friday, Modi is expected to inaugurate two other projects.

The PM will lay the foundation stone for an Indian Agricultural Research Institute in Assam’s Dhemaji district. After that, he’s expected to leave for Guwahati, where he will lay the foundation stone for an All India Institute of Medical Sciences, the first such institution being built in the Northeast.
