PM Narendra Modi inaugurates three major railway projects in Bihar
Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated three major railway projects in Bihar at an estimated cost of 7000 crore rupees.
Three projects are
- Rail-cum-road bridge at Patna over the River Ganga: It is 4.56 km long.
- Rail-cum-road bridge at Munger.
- Additional bridge at Mokama over the River Ganga: It is double line Railway Bridge.
These three bridges will provide connectivity to north and south Bihar and further help in development of North Bihar.
Currently there are three bridges over the entire 460 km length of the river Ganga in Bihar. They are road bridge at Naugachia, a rail-cum-road bridge at Mokama and road bridge Mahatma Gandhi Setu at Patna.
The inadequate number of bridges had become one of the reasons hindering the development of Bihar which is one of the most populous state in the country.
