“We have provided 15,000 tons of rebars for the construction of the country’s only bridge that has fully welded steel-concrete composite girders. Out of the total rebars used in building this engineering wonder, 75 percent has been supplied by Tata Steel,” he said.
“It is a matter of pride for us to be a part of this landmark structure that bridges the distance and enables a better tomorrow for the Northeast. This is a manifestation of the spirit of innovation in Tata Steel and we will continue to develop products to support such mega structures,” Suri added.
“The Tata Steel made available the customised length rebars to minimise steel wastage. Tata Tiscon Super Ductile (SD) rebar, used in the construction of this magnificent structure, is specially designed for construction in earthquake prone zones,” he said.

Tata Steel has contributed to almost all metro railway networks in the country with our pre-stressed concrete strands. These projects include Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Lucknow, Ahmedabad and Kochi metros,” he added.
