Piers placed for world’s tallest railway bridge

The Northeast Frontier Railway Construction Organisation has put in place tall piers near Manipur’s Noney for the tallest railway bridge in the world. The bridge, across the valley of river Ijai, is part of the 111 km Jiribam-Tupul-Imphal project. Once completed, it will have a pier height of 141 m. The record for the tallest railway bridge is now held by the 139 m Mala Rijeka viaduct, Montenegro. “The total length of the bridge will be 703 m. Its tall piers have been made with a specially designed technique to ensure efficient and continual construction,” said Susen K. Ojah, spokesperson of the NFR Construction Organisation.
