Banpo Bridge, Korea - Banpodaegyo Bridge is most famous for the Banpo Bridge Rainbow Fountain which runs along 570 metres of its length on both sides. Devil’s bridge, Germany - Known as Rakotzbrücke, this stunning stone bridge was commissioned by a knight in 1860. Moses Bridge - The West Brabant Line is dotted with 17th century forts and many were surrounded by moats which were deep enough to protect from marauders but too shallow for boat travel. Rolling Bridge, England - At Paddington Basin in London, this 12 metre bridge connects low-lying paths without encumbering river access to the surrounding buildings and offices. Designed by the prolific Thomas Heatherwick, this bridge unfurls via the use of concealed hydraulic pumps. Slauerhoffbrug, Netherlands - Another rather extraordinary example of a moving bridge, this bridge in the Netherlands nicknamed by some as the ‘terminator bridge’ or ‘flying drawbridge’ actually retracts a whole section of road in order to let river traffic through. It does this as many as 10 times a day. The Millau Viaduct, France - This amazing bridge is widely considered to be one of the world’s finest and it was the world’s tallest bridge with a high point of almost 350 metres above the ground until China’s Duge bridge seized that accolade in 2016. Ponte Vecchio, Italy - This gorgeous historical bridge in Florence is noteworthy because of the shops built into its stoney construction. This bridge actually first appears in a document dated to 996. Akashi-Kaikyo, Japan - This extremely beautiful bridge situated near Kobe, Japan, is the world’s longest suspension bridge with a total length of 3,911 metres. Golden Gate Bridge, USA - The Golden Gate Bridge is an internationally recognized symbol of the USA and is one of the country’s most important architectural works. Multnomah falls bridge - You only have to glance at this bridge to see that it’s a bit special. Duge BridgeChina - In this modern era of bridge building, huge and mightily tall bridges are possible to build with what seem like next-to-no supports. Siberian Bridge, Russia - Trift Suspension Bridge, Switzerland - Overlooking spectacular views of the Swiss Alps is this pedestrian-only suspension bridge. Living root bridges, India - Cherrapunji in Northeastern India is one of the wettest places on Earth and hosts an extraordinary tree named the Ficus elastica. Magdeburg Water Bridge, Germany - Jiangzhou Immortal Bridge, China - Natural arches are the bridges of nature and some of these awesome rock formations have existed for several millennia. LEGO Bridge, Germany - This quirky bridge is fortunately not created from actual giant plastic lego bricks but is instead a concrete bridge painted by street artist Martin Heuwold.

How the 3rd Longest Bridge of India on the Mighty Brahmaputra was built?

This is the film on the Fabrication, Assembly and Launching of the 4.94 KM long double decked steel welded Bogibeel Rail-cum-Road bridge, third longest in India and largest over the Mighty Brahmaputra, by Hindustan Construction Company (HCC) Ltd. This first totally welded steel bridge of Indian Railways have two railway tracks in the lower deck and three lane for vehicle movement on the upper deck. The 78,000 metric tonne steel bridge has over 900 kilometers of welding and stands overs 42 pillars. This film show the step-by-step construction process that HCC Ltd has undertaken to build this bridget. It is an example of precise engineering and meticulous planning & implementation. We have developed this film for our client HCC Ltd. This film is a property of our client HCC Ltd and we present it here to showcase our capability to make such Engineering Films.
