Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrives in Assam to dedicated the long-awaited Bogibeel Bridge to the people of the state on Tuesday.
The longest ever rail-cum-road bridge in the country with a length of 4.98 kms connects Bogibeel in the south bank of the Brahmaputra with Kareng Chapori on the north.
The bridge will also enable people in the north bank to access Assam Medical College Hospital, Dibrugarh University, Mohanbari airport and a whole lot of services and markets spread over Dibrugarh, Tinsukia and Sivasagar districts with ease and in less time.
The biggest expectation that the bridge is bringing to this corner of the State is the railway connectivity. The bridge is the third road-cum-rail bridge in Assam over the Brahmaputra making the possibility of connecting Dibrugarh with Guwahati through the north bank via Dhemaji, North Lakhimpur, Rangapara North and Rangiya.
