The Chenab Bridge is an arch bridge under construction in India. It spans the Chenab River between Bakkal and Kauri, in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir. When completed, the bridge will be 1,263?m (4,144?ft) long, with a 480?m (1,570?ft) trussed arch span, 359?m (1,178?ft) above the river Chenab and a 650?m (2,130?ft) long viaduct on the Kauri side.[2][3] The bridge is part of several bridges and tunnels which makes up the Katra-Laole Section of the USBRL Project in Jammu and Kashmir. Another, smaller, arch bridge in the link will be the 657?m (2,156?ft) long, 189?m (620?ft) high Anji Khad bridge between Katra and Reasi. The Chenab Bridge was originally scheduled to be completed in December 2009.[4] However, in September 2008 it was announced that the Chenab bridge had been cancelled due to fears over its stability and safety.[5] Work on the bridge restarted in 2010 and once construction is completed in 2015 the Chenab Bridge is expected to be the world's highest rail bridge.[6][7] [8] Introduction and topography Indian Railways has undertaken the mega-project of construction of a new railway line in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, from Udhampur to Baramulla, which has been declared a national project.[9] The alignment is a culmination of a large number of tunnels and bridges which are to be implemented in highly rugged and mountainous terrain, with the difficult Himalayan geology. The alignment crosses a deep gorge of the Chenab River, near Salal Hydro Power Dam,[10] which necessitates construction of a long span bridge. After many deliberations, the configurations of steel arches were found most suitable, on account of aesthetics, economy, and availability of local expertise and construction materials. The Chenab Bridge, 359?m (1,178?ft) above river bed, will be the highest arch bridge in the world, and longest span for a BG rail line with arch span of 480?m (1,570?ft).[11] This bridge is in the most difficult part of the project which has been assigned to the Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd. It is being constructed by Afcons.[12] Many experts throughout the globe, based on their versatile and relevant experience, have been involved, in order to make this project a success. National codes of India, Indian Railway Standards (IRS), Indian Road Congress (IRC) and Indian Standards (IS) have been supplemented with International standards; British Standards (BS), International Union of Railways (UIC) and Euro, as national codes, were found inadequate for such large spans. The Quality aspect has been emphasized, as the quantum of fabrication and welding is colossal. Mostly indigenous material has been planned to be used, whereas for the design, international codes have been referred, which means the Quality Control work is still difficult. Regular painting of such bridges is an intimidating task; hence, a painting scheme has been developed, having life over 15 years, compared to 5 to 7 years (approx.) of life in most of the Indian railway bridges. The erection scheme for the bridge is a project in itself, where two pylons (about 130 m and 100 m high) are to be erected on either side of the river, and two auxiliary cable cranes (Capacity 80T each), consisting of self-propelled equipment, will be running on the carrying ropes across these pylons.
