 Steel Authority of India Ltd. (SAIL) has said that it was the main supplier of steel for constructing Assam’s Dhola-Sadiya bridge, which is the longest bridge in the country.

The Maharatna enterprise has supplied around 90 percent or around 30,000 tonnes of steel, including TMT, structurals and plates, for this bridge which will connect Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.
 
It said that the product mix offered by SAIL emerged as the major criteria for its selection for the project. The construction of the 9.15-km long bridge kicked off in 2011 under public private partnership mode. This bridge is 3.55 kilometers longer than Mumbai’s Bandra-Worli Sea Link, making it the longest bridge in India.
 
SAIL is supplying steel for several vital projects in the country’s north-eastern region. Apart from the Dhola-Sadiya bridge, SAIL steel is also been used for constructing the Bogibeel Rail-cum-Road bridge, several power plants including 750 MW power plant of NTPC and 600 MW Kameng Hydro-electric project as well as the Trans Arunachal highway.
