SADARGHAT BRIDGE, SILCHAR
The bridge replaces the adjacent distressed bridge. This is the only lack in the city with the Airport and Guwahati/Aizwal/Haflong etc.
The complex plan geometry of approach on Silchar city side is governed by site constraints and availability of land. This is the first bridge in the country designed as per I.R.C 112. During the construction of P6 & P7 adjacent to the foundation of the main bridge/steel wire rope etc. were encountered which increased the time taken for the boring of the bored cast in situ piles by more than 60-70 days. The working season and seasonal water level variation added to the problem. P.H.E water intake point is adjacent to the main piers which retorted the progress of the work.
The Bridge was inaugurated by our Hon'ble Chief Minister of Assam, Shri Sarbananda Sonowal. The tender value of this was 59 crores.
