Indian Railways Successfully Conducts Full Train Trial Run on World's Highest Chenab Rail Bridge

Indian Railways has successfully conducted a full trial run on the newly constructed Chenab Rail Bridge, the world's highest railway bridge, connecting Sangaldan in Ramban district to Reasi. This trial follows a successful engine trial run conducted on Sunday, June 16.

Union Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw announced the successful electric engine trial, highlighting the progress: "The first trial train has successfully run from Sangaldan to Reasi, including crossing the Chenab Bridge. All construction works for the USBRL are nearly finished, with only tunnel No. 1 remaining partially incomplete."

The 46-km Sangaldan-Reasi stretch is set for inspection over two days by Commissioner of Railways Safety (CRS) D C Deshwal, as the ministry approaches the completion of this ambitious project, an official stated.

Deepak Kumar, Northern Railway's chief public relations officer, confirmed the inspection dates as June 27 and 28, assuring that all necessary tasks will be completed in time for the CRS inspection.

The Chenab Bridge, constructed at a cost of Rs 14,000 crore, aims to address numerous connectivity challenges in Jammu and Kashmir by providing reliable connections in difficult weather and terrain. This bridge is part of the Rs. 35,000 crore Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla Railway Link (USBRL) project, which seeks to significantly enhance connectivity in the region.
