224-meter viaduct at Sherebibi in J&K successfully completed

The 224-meter segment, as part of the broader project, not only reduces the travel distance by 125 meters, thus mitigating steep gradients, but also avoids the need for a steep cutting with a hill slope angle exceeding 80 degrees.

Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari in a post said on Monday that the construction of a 224-meter viaduct (2-lane) at Sherebibi in Jammu & Kashmir at an estimated cost of Rs 12 crore has been successfully completed. This infrastructure is situated along the Ramban to Banihal section of NH-44. The 224-meter segment, as part of the broader project, not only reduces the travel distance by 125 meters, thus mitigating steep gradients, but also avoids the need for a steep cutting with a hill slope angle exceeding 80 degrees. 

Further, it significantly facilitates the smooth flow of vehicles, bypassing the challenging terrain of Sherebibi area gradients, Gadkari said.

The minister in a tweet on X said it’s important to note that this project contributes to the region’s economic growth and enhances its overall connectivity. He said, “Under the visionary leadership of the Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra ModiJi we remain steadfast in our commitment to delivering exceptional highway infrastructure to the state of Jammu & Kashmir.”
