SHILLONG, Nov 22: One of the longest road bridges in the country will come up over the Brahmaputra Bridge, the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region stated.

“The proposed 18 Km-long bridge will be one of India’s longest road bridges that will connect Meghalaya closer to Assam. A major boost to North East’s transport connectivity,” DoNER minister Dr. Jitendra Singh tweeted.

Dr. Singhalso said that this will be a massive boost for north-east transport connectivity.

The Ministry informed that the bridge will be constructed by Larsen & Toubro at an estimated cost of Rs. 3, 200 crore.
