With the construction of a strong road on the Indian border, the central government is now preparing for another major blow to China. India will build the country’s longest road on the Brahmaputra River. The bridge, which connects Assam and Meghalaya, will be more than 18 km long. As a result, a long road from the Chinese border to the Bangladesh border will be paved. The bridge will be very important from a social and military point of view. The road will use military vehicles, groceries and commercial vehicles. In addition, the eastern states can get more traffic.
According to a senior official of the Ministry of Roads and Transport, last week the construction of the Brahmaputra river road bridge was carried out from Dhubari in Assam to Phulbari in Meghalaya. Road construction will begin soon. The work is expected to begin in the new year. It will be completed by 2026-27. It will cost around Rs 5,000 crore. The project will build 12.62 km of bridges over the river, 3.5 km of roads in Dhubari and 2.2 km of roads in Phulbari.
With the construction of this river pole, it will be easier to travel to Assam, Meghalaya and Tripura. It now takes 3 hours to cross the Brahmaputra river by boat. On a rainy day, communication is cut off. People travel about 250 km. This will no longer be a problem after the bridge is built. The vehicles will run at 100 km per hour on this road.
Earlier it was reported that China was going to build a huge dam on the Brahmaputra River in the name of hydropower projects. According to the head of a Chinese company that is responsible for the construction of the dam, China Media has said that China will build a major dam on the Berhampur River in Tibet. The proposal is being considered in the 14th Five-Year Plan, which will take effect next year.
According to the Global Times, Yang Jiong, chairman of the Power Construction Corporation of China, said China would launch a low-water project on the Yangtze River (the Tibetan name for Brahmaputra). The project could help strengthen water resources and domestic security.
