Indian Railways Constructing World’s Tallest Pier Bridge in Manipur

The Indian Railways is constructing the tallest pier railway bridge of the world in Manipur. The bridge is being constructed across river Ijai near Noney, and it will be the tallest pier with a height of 141 metres. Currently, the tallest pier bridge record is held by 139 metre high Mala-Rijeka viaduct built at Montenegro in Europe.

The ambitious project of the Railways in Manipur is part of the Jiribam-Imphal railway line, which ultimately is part of a new broad gauge line being constructed to connect the northeastern state with the rest of the country.

Security forces are deployed at the site, where a bridge of a total length of 703 metres is being constructed. Once completed, the project will enable passengers to cover 111 km of distance in 2-2.5 hrs.
