Domestic steel giant Tata Steel said it has supplied 75 per cent of the total rebars used in Bogibeel rail-cum-road bridge that was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday. It is the country’s longest rail-cum-road bridge, built over the Brahmaputra river at Bogibeel near Dibrugarh in Assam.

Out of the total rebars used in building this engineering wonder, 75 per cent of rebar steel has been supplied by Tata Steel,” the company said in a statement.
Tata Steel made available the customised length rebars to minimise steel wastage, it added. Tata Steel Group is among the top global steel companies with an annual crude steel capacity of 27.5 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) as on March 31, 2018.
