Chenab Railway Bridge with the golden joint

The Indian Engineering marvel, the wonder in latest building technology the Chenab Railway Bridge, the world’s highest Railway Bridge has had its ultimate stage that of the “golden joint” completed and inaugurated, a historic moment indeed. The enthusiasm, spirit, zeal and the morale of all those technical, non technical staff who were closely associated with this special bridge could be seen when overreach deck of the bridge was linked with golden joint recently in a simple function. Bharat Mata Ki Jai like slogans rented the air amidst unfurling of the National Flag atop this bridge. Those who used to wish Kashmir to get linked with Kanya Kumari by train can see it now actually going to happen just within a few months only. Such a National Asset is the pride of the nation and is majestically standing in the most difficult and challenging geographical topography. This bridge can very safely provide the ”strength” to running of trains over it with 100 kms speed per hour and a new history in Jammu and Kashmir’s development journey is thus being written.
