Sambalpur, Feb 11: A bow string girder of 60 meters and weighing about 355 tonne has been launched today at a Road Over Bridge (ROB) near Sambalpur by the construction wing of East Coast Railway (ECoR).
Launching of such a bow string girder at ROB was a challenge. The team of Chief Project Manager (CPM) of 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 first time in the history of Odisha and ECoR. “The launching of 60 meter bow string girder was a difficult proposition which has been successfully executed. State govt portion of rest spans are also under construction. Once this ROB gets functional there will be huge relief to the commuters at the level crossing of Khetrajpur area. This will facilitate movement of traffic from Remed Chowk of NH-6 to Khetrajpur,” said an official.
