The Bogibeel rail / road bridge is being built across the River Brahmaputra in the Dibrugarh district, in the state of Assam in north-east India. The 4.94km bridge is one of the longest river bridges in the country.
The Bogibeel rail-road bridge is a double-deck bridge with a two-line railway track on the lower deck and a three-lane road on the upper.
It will enhance national security of the eastern region of India by facilitating swift movement of defence forces.
It will also provide a shorter and alternative railway route to Dibrugarh via North Bank of Brahmaputra.
