                                      Press Release No. 177  Dt.   27.11.2018 

COMPLETION OF REGIRDERING OF

BHADRA RIVER RAILWAY BRIDGE IN 7 DAYS

South Western Railway has completed the replacement of existing old meter gauge rebraced girder with metalized welded steel girder which will suit for 25 Tones Axle loading across the river Bhadra near Bhadravati Station. The Bridge No. 59 is located at 43/800 - 44/000 Km between Masarahalli and Bhadravati Station of Birur - Shivamogga Section of Mysuru Division.

The old girders of Bridge No. 59 were originally fabricated prior to 1926 and those  MG girders which were rebraced to suit  broad gauge track during gauge conversion in 1996. Now with the regirdering of this old bridge with metalized steel girder the permanent speed restriction of 50 kmph imposed for goods traffic will be cancelled.

The Bridge No. 59 is having span of 11 x 18.30 meters over the perennial river Bhadra near Bhadravati. This work was completed in record time of 7 days from 17th  November to 23rd  November availing the minimum blockage without affecting the traffic. This regirdering work is taken during November 2018 duly taking advantage of less water flow in the river during this period . The bridge has the height of 10 meters from the river level to the bottom of the girder and is situated o­n the downstream of Bhadra dam, the biggest dam in Karnataka.

The regirdering was done with 2 Nos. of 250 tones capacity road crane with keeping an extra crane as stand by. The work was managed by group of 70 departmental staff led by Dy. CE Bridge Line / Hubballi,  DEN/Bridge/Mysuru and ADEN/Shivamogga Town.
