Railway Board Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Verma said, keeping in mind the many challenges faced in the construction of the bridge, our people have done a commendable job. It is very challenging to build a ‘vertical-lift’ bridge over seas that are often rough. This is the first bridge of its kind in the country. The existing railway bridge was built in 1913. Train services between mainland Mandapam and Rameshwaram Island were suspended on December 23, 2022, after it was declared ‘not operational’ due to safety reasons.

Pamban bridge built earlier had become old

A Southern Railway (SR) official said since the earlier Pamban bridge had become old and was not safe to use, it had become necessary to build a new bridge.

He said, when the Pamban bridge was operational, trains used to reach Rameshwaram through the bridge. She walked slowly on the Pamban bridge and reached Tirthanagari in about 15 minutes. Now trains do not go beyond Mandapam and people go to Rameshwaram by road.

IRCTC: Now you will get a confirmed ticket in the train, otherwise the money will be refunded immediately, know the cool plan of IRCTC.

Traffic will increase between mainland and Rameshwaram Island

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid the foundation stone of the new bridge parallel to the old bridge in November 2019 and Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL) started its construction work in February 2020. This work was to be completed by December 2021, but due to the Corona virus global pandemic, this deadline was extended. According to SR, with the help of this 2.05 km long bridge, trains can be operated at high speed and it will also increase the traffic between mainland India and Rameshwaram Island.
