In our recent report, we revealed that India has now overtaken China as the world’s most populous country for the first time in several decades. Again, India has achieved a remarkable feat in engineering with the construction of the world’s tallest railway bridge. The Chenab Bridge stands at a height of 1,180 feet, which is higher than the Eiffel Tower by a staggering 95 feet.
Located in the Jammu and Kashmir region of India, the bridge spans across the Chenab River, and has taken several decades to complete. According to CNN, the Ministry of Railways announced that the bridge will be open by the end of December 2023 or January 2024.
The Indian Railway network is undertaking a significant project to improve access to the Kashmir Valley, with the construction of the 4,314 feet-long Chenab Bridge being a key component of this initiative.
