Assam’s Revolutionary Move – Building an Underwater Tunnel beneath Brahmaputra River!

Assam, India is planning to build an underwater tunnel under the Brahmaputra River. The tunnel will connect the two banks of the river and will be used for both rail and road traffic.

The tunnel is expected to be 4.9 kilometers long and will be built at a depth of 150 meters below the riverbed. The tunnel is estimated to cost around INR 500 billion (USD 7 billion) and is expected to be completed by 2027.

The tunnel is part of Assam’s plan to develop its infrastructure and improve connectivity. The tunnel will help to reduce travel time between the two banks of the river and will also help to boost economic activity in the region.

The tunnel will be built using a combination of cut-and-cover and bored tunneling methods. The cut-and-cover method will be used for the first 1.5 kilometers of the tunnel, while the bored tunneling method will be used for the remaining 3.4 kilometers.

The tunnel will have two lanes for road traffic and one track for rail traffic. The tunnel will also have a number of ventilation shafts and emergency exits.

The construction of the tunnel is a major undertaking and will require the use of advanced tunneling technology. However, the tunnel is expected to be completed on time and within budget.

The tunnel is a significant project for Assam and will have a major impact on the state’s economy and development. The tunnel will help to improve connectivity, boost economic activity, and reduce travel time. It is a major step forward for Assam and will help to transform the state.
