Bhairab Railway Bridge

Bhairab railway bridge is located over the river Meghna. The bridge was opened on 6 December 1937 enabling through communication between Dhaka and Chittagong.


  1. May we get some structural and engineering details of that bridge?

  2. One correction I want to add:
    New Railway Bridge between Ashuganj and Bhairab bazar over Meghna river was opened to traffic on the 12th June 1937.
    Not 6th December 1967

    It was named King George VI Bridge.

    It was opened by the Hon'ble Sir Guthrie Russell, K.C.I.E., Chief Commissioner of Railways, in the .presence of the Hon'ble Mr. Fazlul Huq, Premier of Bengal, and several distinguished railway officials and guests.
