DESIGN OF 21KM BRIDGE OVER BRAHMAPUTRA AT DHUBRI-PHULBARI
Assam & Meghalaya
Connectivity in the Northeastern region of the country is set to get a boost with construction of more bridges connecting one state to another, primarily Assam and Meghalaya. In probably next 5 years Dhola-Sadiya bridge will lose its 'title' to Dhubri-Phulbari bridge, but BPC INDIA holds the title for executing the geotechnical engineering for both the projects, in two completely different geomorphological condition on the same river of Mighty Brahmaputra.
Assam is the gateway to the landlocked NE region. Thus, its railway and road network has significant strategic importance for the integration of the lagging NE region with the country‘s economy. As a special priority, The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways /National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (MORTH)/ (NHIDCL) awarded the consultancy work to M/s AECOM Asia Company Limited for the preparation of Detailed Project Report for “Construction of a two/four lane Bridge including approaches over the River Brahmaputra Between Dhubri (North Bank) and Phulbari (South Bank) in state of Assam/Meghalaya on NH-127B (Length: 21 km) on EPC Mode JICA".
