J&K: India’s first cable-stayed bridge-Anji Khad Bridge to connect Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla route

India’s first cable-stayed bridge- Anji Khad Bridge will be complete by December this year in Reasi district of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. This was stated by Konkan Railways Project Officer Sanjay Kumar today.

Anji Khad Bridge is situated over the Anji river. It will connect the Katra-Reasi section at the Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla route. The 272-kilometer long Udhampur-Baramulla Railway Line will be a game-changer for the Union Territory and 80 percent of the work on the project has been completed.

For now, the focus is on the strategic, intervening line of about 111 kms between Katra and Banihal, which consists of many tunnels and escape tunnels. The project is the highest altitude railway network in India — defying gravity on the impossible terrain of the Pir Panjal Mountain Range.

The world’s most advanced technologies are being used for the planning and construction of the Kashmir Railway Project. What makes it more exciting are the peculiar challenges specific to this region, for which many times new technologies had to be developed by experts in India and abroad to tackle the concerns
