Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on December 28 inspected the construction of the Makru Bridge at Imphal-Jiribam Road.

In a tweet, he expressed his happiness regarding the construction process and said that once the bridge was complete, then it will improve Manipur's connectivity with the world.

"Glad to see the progress of Makru Bridge at Imphal-Jiribam road. As we complete this crucial bridge on NH37, the road connectivity with Assam as well as the rest of the country will be improved by multiple folds," N Biren tweeted.


It's worth mentioning here that the bridge is constructed over river Makru in Tamenglong district of Manipur.

It is the first bridge constructed by the Indian Railways with over 100 meter high piers to have all its girders in place.

The Jiribam-Imphal railway line will connect Manipur to the rest of India through the Indian Railways network.

The ambitious railway line project was taken up in the year 2008.

The Jiribam-Imphal railway line project is expected to be complete by 2022.
