The Bogibeel Bridge spans across the Brahmaputra River, connecting the Dhemaji and Dibrugarh districts in the state of Assam. It is situated near the town of Dibrugarh. The bridge is approximately 4.94 kilometers (3.07 miles) long, making it one of the longest rail-cum-road bridges in India. It is a combined road and rail bridge, designed to carry both road traffic and trains. The construction of the Bogibeel Bridge began in 2002, and it was completed in 2018. The primary purpose of the bridge is to facilitate faster movement of goods and passengers between the northern and southern banks of the Brahmaputra River. Prior to its construction, the only means of transport across the river was through ferries, which were often affected by the river's high currents during the monsoon season. The Bogibeel Bridge holds strategic importance, especially for India's defense forces, as it enhances accessibility to the border areas of Arunachal Pradesh. It also has economic significance by improving connectivity in the region. The construction of the Bogibeel Bridge was a significant engineering achievement due to the challenges posed by the Brahmaputra River, including its strong currents and frequent changes in course. The bridge has a double-decker structure, with two levels. The upper level is designed for the movement of trains, while the lower level is for road traffic. The bridge is part of the Indian Railways network and connects Dibrugarh in Assam to Itanagar, the capital of Arunachal Pradesh. It has significantly improved the connectivity between these regions.
