The Indian Government has taken a policy decision on building a bridge linking Talaimannar in Sri Lanka with Danushkodi, Indian Union Minister Kalraj Mishra said.

“We have decided to build a bridge that would help develop both the countries in various fronts..It is a policy stand and we will implement it,” the Union Minister for Micro medium and Small Enterprises said, according to the Press Trust of India.

In July the Union minister of state for road transport, highways and shipping, Pon Radhakrishna had said that the Indian central government is considering a proposal to establish a rail bridge linking Rameswaram in the Tamil Nadu state and Thalaimannar in Sri Lanka’s northwest.

The Union Minister has told reporters during an informal chat that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP government is considering a proposal to establish a bridge to connect the two countries.

A short boat ride used to connect the railway lines that ended at Thalaimannar in Sri Lanka and Dhanushkodi in India, which was in operation till 1966. The distance between Dhanushkodi in Rameswaram and the Sri Lankan boundary is about 23 kilometers. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. Road & Rail bridge between India & Srilanka

    It have been proposed to construct a Road & Rail bridge between India & Srilanka .
    If road & rail conection is done all goods & cargo will be given to Sri lanken harbours & Ports . So our South Indian Ports & harbours such as Tutucorin ,Vizhingham ,Kochi ,& The Proposed harbour at Colachal will not get any goods & cargo for shipment . Hence our economy will be severlly affected .
    This is because the Srilanken harbours are situated deep in Indian Ocean than our South Indian Ports .
    Further the importance of Southe India will be shifted to Srilanka & so Tourisem will be affected for Tamil Nadu & Keralla . Also the cash crops such as coconut , pepper , cordemen , cloves & rubber produced by cheap labour in Srlanka iwill be dumped into India at very low rates via the road & rail link & so the economy of Kerala & south Tamil Nadu will collapse .
    So there is no need for this road & rail bridge at the cost of Rs 25000 Crore (Rupees twenty five thousand crore ] which is to be taken as loan from AD Bank to increase our forigen loan burden on every citizen of India.
