The world's highest railway bridge is being constructed in India over the Chenab River, to link sections of the mountainous regions within the country's northern Jammu and Kashmir state. Expected to be completed in 2016, it is likely to be 35 metres taller than the Eiffel Tower.
The bridge will connect Baramulla to Jammu in the Himalayan state with a travel time of six-and-a-half hours, almost half the time it currently takes.
Work on the bridge started in 2002 but safety and feasibility concerns, including the area's strong winds, saw the project halted in 2008 before being green-lighted again two years later.
The estimated cost of the project, which is being handled by Konkan railway corporation, a subsidiary of state-owned Indian railways, is $92 million.
