60 meters long bow string girder launched at Sambalpur

Sambalpur:11/2/21: A bowstring girder of 60 meters and weighing about 355 tonnes has been launched today at a Road Over Bridge (ROB) near Sambalpur by the construction wing of East Coast Railway (ECoR).

Launching such a bowstring girder at ROB was a challenge. The team of Chief Project Manager (CPM) of the construction wing of ECoR at Sambalpur completed this job with accurate planning and got the work executed successfully despite lots of constraints and difficulties.

Such type of girder launching is the first time in the history of Odisha and ECoR. “The launching of 60-meter bowstring girder was a difficult proposition which has been successfully executed. State govt portion of rest spans is also under construction. Once this ROB gets functional there will be a huge relief to the commuters at the level crossing of  Khetrajpur area. This will facilitate the movement of traffic from Remed Chowk of NH-6 to Khetrajpur,” said an official.
