Dhola Sadiya Bridge – India’s Longest River Bridge

An engineering marvel, Dhola-Sadia Bridge is India’s longest river bridge constructed over the Brahmaputra river, spanning a total of 9.15 km.

This historic bridge, linking Dhola to Sadia in Tinsukia District of Assam, is crucial from a strategic perspective as it is close to the border state of Arunachal Pradesh. Envisioned to seamlessly connect the north-east and the rest of India, the construction is an infrastructural masterpiece.

Apart from providing an all-weather access to civilian transportation, the bridge will enhance Indian Army’s mobilisation capabilities and movement of troops and heavy equipment including heavy artillery and battle tanks weighing up to 100 tonnes.
