Guwahati, May 25: India’s longest river bridge in Assam is waiting to get inaugurated by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow. Brahmaputra River will get this longest bridge which is 9.15-km-long and will improve connectivity between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.
Inauguration of Dhola Sadiya Bridge will also mark the three year anniversary celebrations of #ModiSarkar. This bridge will also help reduce the travel time between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh by over 4 hours. As there is no civilian airport in Arunachal Pradesh, the Dhola-Sadiya Bridge will help the civilians of the bordering state with China to access better road connectivity.
Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said that “the Prime Minister will dedicate the strategically important bridge to the nation on May 26. It will bolster road connectivity in the North East as the bridge will be used by people of Assam and Arunachal, besides Defense forces, extensively.”
Assam BJP Leader Jagdish Bhuyan expressed his heartily wishes and said that "It is my dream project. I am so happy that this project is completed after 14 years. The people of Sadiya in Assam side and Anini in Arunachal Pradesh had faced lots of problems as they had to take a four- hour ferry ride to cross the Brahmaputra River.” “Assam and Arunachal Pradesh have huge strategic value to the country. Since the bridge is located close to our border with China, it will help quick movement of military troops and artillery in times of conflict,” Sonowal added.
