Earlier in late February, the Ministry of Railways has informed about progress of the projcet.
"Reaching Arch Completion: The steel arch of Chenab bridge, World's highest Railway Bridge, finally reaching at closure position," the Ministry of Railways had tweeted.
Dubbed as World's highest Railway Bridge, 1.315-km long Chenab bridge is being built above the Chenab river at a height of 359 metres in Jammu and Kashmir.
Popularly known as Anji Khad Bridge, the country's first cable-stayed Indian Railways bridge, will come up on Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla Rail Link (USBRL) section of Northern Railway in Jammu & Kashmir. The project is being developed by the Konkan Railway.
On the same day in February, Railways Minister Piyush Goyal also took to Twitter to inform public about it. He wrote," Infrastructural Marvel in Making: Indian Railways is well on track to achieve another engineering milestone with the steel arch of Chenab bridge reaching at closure position. It is all set to be the world's highest Railway bridge Bridge at night."
It is the most challenging project in the post-independent history of the national transporter, Konkan Railways had said. News agency PTI had quoted Sanjay Gupta, Chairman Konkan Railway, saying that the world’s highest railway bridge, connecting Kashmir with the rest of India through a rail line will be completed by December 2021.
At 359 metres above Chenab, this rail bridge will also be 30 meters higher than the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.
