The Bairabi-Sairang New Line project to connect Mizoram in the northeast with the rest of the country is likely to be completed soon. The project aims to create an additional 51.38 km of railway track in northeast India.
The Bairabi-Sairang project includes 55 bridges that require about 42,000 tonnes of steel to manufacture, transport and build. A record 35,000 tons of steel were manufactured in the last 14 months and approximately 30,000 tons were transported to various work sites.
Transporting the fabricated girders to the bridge site is a tough task which is being done with 2-2 round the clock deployment of trailers and heavy vehicles to help in sharp curves in narrow mountain roads and pulling/pushing these trailers on steep slopes .
The railroad has stated that the construction of the steel beams is a critical activity of the project. Despite the cold nights and remote areas, the work is being executed 24 x 7. Though there are many challenges in the execution of this project such as a very short working season due to heavy and prolonged monsoons, difficult hilly terrain through deep forests, poor access, unavailable in construction materials and skilled labor in Mizoram, etc., Northeast Frontier Railway. will make every effort for early commissioning of the project.
