Teesta / Toong

General Overview: The bridge site is situated in North Sikkim district on way to Chungthang. The general arrangement of the bridge consists of abutments and two piers with well foundation. The superstructure is a balanced cantilever with the middle span of 90 m. The construction crew is using two gantries from opposite ends to meet finally in the middle of the river.

 

Challenges faced during Construction: The bridge site is located in a very remote area with unstable terrain. The construction work has been continuously hampered due to regular land slides, flash floods and an earthquake in 2011. In addition, it is a task in itself to supply materials for construction to the site because of lack of proper roads leading to the site.
