    World’s highest railway bridge enters crucial stage

    JAMMU: Indian Railways has completed over 70 per cent of work on the 359 meters world’s highest railway bridge over River Chenab in Kauri area of Reasi district.
    The railway authorities are looking forward to provide direct connectivity to the Kashmir Valley, latest by 2020 after completing railway bridge by June 2019.
    With this it would be easier for the Indian army to rush its supplies and men via rail route to the Valley besides promoting tourism in the region.
    To achieve timely completion of the Chenab Railway Bridge, top officials of the Railway Ministry on Sunday launched the construction work of the main arch of the iconic bridge. This is the most crucial leg of the construction. It is for the first time in India that concrete filled steel arch is being used in the main arch bridge, spanning at a height of 359 meters above river bed.
    The launch of the main arch commenced after traditional prayers were offered by M. K Gupta, Member Engineering, Railway Board and AK Sachan, Chief Administrative officer, USBRL at the Chenab construction site.
    With this the railway engineers would begin the job of carrying heavy segments from the two ends of the bridge viz. Kauri end and Bakkal end and includes categorically the world’s longest cable crane arrangement.
    Senior officers of KRCL and Northern Railway along with construction partners were present on this historic occasion.
    It may be mentioned that the Chenab Bridge on Katra- Banihal section of USBRL project is the world’s highest Railway Arch bridge at 359 meters height.
    World renowned national & international consultants have been engaged during various stages of project.
    Detailed geo-physical studies, seismic studies, slope stability studies have been included.
    According to Chief Public Relations Officer of Indian Railways, “Chenab Bridge has been designed for blast load in consultation with DRDO”.
    He said, the erection of the bridge is a project in itself.
    To achieve this, pylons were erected on either side of the river, and two auxiliary self-propelled cable cranes were used to tow temporary auxiliary ropes across these pylons.
    The ropes were used to support the partly finished arch parts.
    The launching is typically performed in a series of increments so that additional sections can be added to the rear of the superstructure unit prior to subsequent launches.
    The bridge is envisaged to create its own benchmarks in construction engineering and unparalleled records.
    Three massive workshops for undertaking fabrication of steel structure has been commissioned at Srinagar end of bridge and one at Katra end of the bridge. For launching purpose, arrangements in the form of pylons with cable cranes spanning the entire gorge have been completed successfully. The cable crane assembly, including pylons at span of 915 meters is the longest in the world . For the first time on Indian Railways viaduct was launched on curve of 2.74 degree.

    PM Modi to inaugurate Hyderabad Metro Rail next week, service to open for public from November 29

    The Hyderabad Metro Rail project, to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 28, would be thrown open for public from the next day, Telangana minister K T Rama Rao said here today.

    The metro rail project would be inaugurated by the Prime Minister at 2.15 pm on Tuesday, he told reporters.

    "The metro stretch of 30 kms, to be thrown open for public, would be the longest in the country on inauguration," the Municipal Administration Minister said.

    "This will be the longest stretch for any metro in our country being unveiled on day one. We are going to start the stretch of 30 kms, from Nagole to Miyapur...After Prime Minister formally inaugurates on November 28, metro services would be opened for public on the next day (on 29th) at 6 am," he said.

    The metro train services would function from 6 am to 10 pm initially and the timings would be changed to 5.30 am to 11 pm, depending on traffic and demand, Rao said.

    The Hyderabad metro rail is the largest such project in the world in Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode, he said.

    All safety clearances have been obtained and L&T, the concessionaire, and the Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) are fully geared up for the inauguration, he said. He appreciated the L&T and HMR for their good work.

    Rao said 57 coaches are ready and available. Each train would initially have three coaches and 330 people can travel in each coach. The number of coaches can be increased to six depending on the traffic, he said. Twenty four metro stations would be opened now.

    The Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) would start feeder services for metro, he said. Some private organisations are planning to launch services to connect the metro stations.

    "Cycle stations would be set up in all metro stations in due course," he said.

    A smart card was launched today for metro rail passengers and the card would be used for multiple modes of transport in future, Rao said. A mobile app (named 'T Savari') would also be launched for the benefit of passengers.

    The metro fares would soon be announced by L&T, he said adding that the fares will be competitive.

    "Almost 18 million square feet of commercial real estate will be built, which will also be leveraged for making this project viable. Advertising is also a part of the revenues that will continue to bring viability to the project," Rao said.

    Asked about cost escalation of the project, he said the concessionaire has represented about it and it is not correct to talk about the issue in public domain before reaching a finality on it.

    "The state government has started its efforts for the second phase of metro as well," Rao said adding that he would go to Japan in January.

    Asked about the deadline set for the completion of the entire project, he said it is next year.

    Rao was speaking after a group of MLAs, MPs and other public representatives took a ride in the metro.

    India has a large territory and a large population. It should build more railways, highways and airports. This will bring a lot of benefits to the economic development.
    Chinese people usually use the Internet to get information about India, but it can be very inaccurate and may lead to misunderstandings. It is hoped that the two countries will have more exchanges and mutual understanding. China and India both have such vast territory and large population, and are rich in resources. If China and India can develop rapidly, the United States will be replaced in the next century.
