Country’s first underwater road-cum-rail tunnels to be in Assam

01 Jun 2022

The road and railway Ministries and the Border Road Organisation (BRO) have come on board for construction of the country’s first underwater road-cum-rail tunnel across the Brahmaputra in Assam. The project is expected to be an engineering marvel and will also reduce travel time between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. This is the first project where integrated tunnel construction will be undertaken. The tunnels will be inter-connected with cross passage for evacuation in case of any emergency.
