Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated India's longest bridge on May 26, 2017.

Earlier, it took nearly six hours to travel from Assam to Arunachal Pradesh by road. This bridge called the Dhola-Sadia is the longest bridge in India and reduces the traveling time to a mere one hour. It starts from Dhola in Assam and goes up to Sadia in Arunachal Pradesh.

This project was sanctioned by UPA government in 2011 when Manmohan Singh was the Prime Minister. However, it could not be completed as the project was lost in bureaucratic wrangle.

With just three years in power, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government ensured that the construction gets completed.

Dhola-Sadia bridge is longer than the most talked about Bandra-Worli Sea Link in Mumbai.

The bridge will help Indians from across the country to discover the rich biodiversity, culture and heritage sites of north east India, which were difficult to access earlier.
