WRI, HCC to jointly build India’s longest railway bridgeWelding Research Institute (WRI), a part of BHEL, on Monday has joined hands with Hindustan Construction Co Ltd. (HCC) for building India’s longest railway bridge over the Brahmaputra.


It is expected that the railway bridge would enhance connectivity between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. The Memorandum of Understanding documents were exchanged between S Suresh, General Manager, WRI and Kishore, Head, Transport Sector, HCC, earlier this month.   


India’s longest rail-cum-road bridge estimated for completion by the end of year 2015 at a cost of Rs 3,230 crore would be of strategic importance, reducing the time taken for travelling between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.  

The agreement entails providing welding consultancy, procedure development, inspection and distortion control, training of welding engineers, supervisors and welders as per European standards.   


The MoU will pave the way for the speedy completion of the bogey wheel project over the Brahmaputra with the latest welding techniques. The connectivity will also give a thrust to regional tourism, trade and commerce, according to Krishnan.
