India’s longest river bridge to reduce distance between Assam and Meghalaya
01 Dec 2020
The distance between Dhubri to Phulbari will soon be just 18-km, and the distance between the two neighbouring states of Assam and Meghalaya will be reduced by 203-km, as India's longest river bridge will be built across the River Brahmaputra by Larsen & Toubro. L&T acquired the project after emerging as the lowest bidder at Rs.32 bn. The four-lane road bridge will be from Dhubri to Phulbari on NH 127 B, National Highways & Infrastructure Development Corporation (NHIDCL) said recently. The bridge will be financed by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) as a part of its investment for the development of the north-eastern region.
