India's longest railway bridge


The bridge, to connect the International Container Transshipment Terminal (ICTT) at Vallarpadam with Edapally near here, has been constructed in the Kochi backwaters. G Keshava Chandran, deputy general manager of Rail Vikas Nigam Limited, said: “The project cost for this mega bridge is estimated to be Rs 295 crore. The work began in May 2007 and is progressing on schedule.”

The bridge is a necessity for the proposed Rs 2,118 crore ICTT, billed as the country’s first global hub terminal which is set to alter the development map of the state through huge investment in the coming years.

The ICTT project is set to launch a series of ventures including the Rs 1,600-crore LNG terminal and the port-based Special Economic Zone among others.
