PM Modi inaugurates India’s longest ‘Dhola-Sadia’ bridge
Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Dhola-Sadia Bridge in Assam’s Tinsukia on Friday morning. The bridge has been constructed above the Brahamputra river and is more than 9.15 kilometers long, making it the nation’s longest bridge. It will connect Dhola in Assam to Sadiya in Arunachal Pradesh. This bridge will open new avenues for the farmers, says PM Modi. The bridge is designed to facilitate the movement of battle tanks which is expected to help movement of troops and tanks to the Sino-Indian border. Reportedly, the travel time to cross over to Sadiya near the Lohit border in Arunachal will reduce by four hours and it will take a mere 30 minutes to cross.
