Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the rail-cum-road ‘Bogibeel Bridge’ on December 25, connecting the north and south banks of the Brahmaputra, falling in the eastern part of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, a senior railway official said. The 4.94 km long bridge, is the longest rail-cum-road bridge in India.

  • While former prime minister H D Deve Gowda laid the foundation stone for the Bogibeel bridge in January 1997, the work started only in April 2002 when former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee inaugurated the construction.
  • The first freight train ran on it on December 3.
  • Bogibeel is part of infrastructure projects planned by India to improve logistics along the border in Arunachal Pradesh.
