The world’s highest arch bridge, the Chenab Bridge in Jammu and Kashmir is a sight to behold as it stands high between the clouds in the valley. The Union Ministry of Railways recently took to its official Twitter handle and posted a series of pictures showcasing the breathtaking visuals of the Chenab Bridge in the union territory. As the series of aerial images have been shot by a drone, it shows the bridge standing strong as thick white clouds make it a surreal sight to view. It is pertinent to note that the construction work of the bridge has been completed while the work of laying railway tracks under it is yet to be completed. It is expected that the bridge will be open by the end of this year or by the beginning of next year at the latest.

Speaking about the pictures shared by the Railway Ministry, the staggering height of the bridge is evident as it stands between the mountains while clouds move under it. Also, visuals from the golden hour make the bridge look more mesmerising. The Ministry captioned the pictures as “A sight of the breathtakingly beautiful Chenab Bridge.”

Earlier in February this year, a similar outstanding picture was also shared by Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw and captioned with “The world’s highest arch Chenab Bridge over the clouds.”

All about the Chenab Bridge:

Built at a projected cost of Rs 1,250 crore, the bridge is said to be the highest railway bridge in the world, even higher than the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It is constructed with steel and concrete and stands over the Chenab river in the Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir. The 1.315 km long bridge is 359 meters in height.

While it is expected to open by December 2022, the bridge will help connect Srinagar to the rest of the country. Also, it will help to connect the Salal-e and Dugga railway stations on either side of the bridge to the river in Reasi.
