India Bridges 90 to 100 meters

Jump to navigationJump to search

India’s two highest rail bridges since their completion in 2007, the Jhajjar Khad (90 meters high) and Gambhir bridge (77 meters high) are both located on the new Jammu-Udhampur rail line that will eventually connect to the larger Jammu-Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla railway link (aka USBRL) in Kashmir. Previously, India’s highest rail bridge was the 1974-built Panval Nadhi viaduct (70 meters high) on the Konkan railway near Ratnagari. All of these bridges will seem insignificant once the record breaking Chenab and Anjikhad arch bridges are completed on the Katra-Quazigund section of the USBRL.
