Ramanathapuram: The construction of a new railway bridge project at the Pamban Sea, Rameswaram in Ramanathapuram district of Tamil Nadu has begun by the Indian Railways, on Wednesday.
Development of the new railway bridge project at the Pamban Sea costs Rs 250 crores. The logistical materials required for the construction of the project are kept near the Mandapam railway station.
The construction of pillar work has begun at the north coast of Pamban, after the pillar testing was completed at Mandapam Thonithurai, and the north coast of Pamban.
As the railway service is fast approaching, Rameswaram island people and tourists likely expect the Pamban Rail bridgework to be completed within two years.
“Pamban railway bridge, which connects Rameswaram Island with the Mandapam landscape has a functioning of over 100 years. Now, the new railway bridge construction is going on in the Pamban north side. It is good news for island people,” said Arasu, local.
