On the eve of India’s 75th Independence Day, the Ministry of Railways shared a video of the tricolour flying atop the Noney bridge in Manipur, which is an ongoing project of the Indian Railways.

Part of the 111-km Jiribam-Imphal project, once completed Noney bridge would be the tallest railway pier bridge in the world. Standing at 141 metre, it would surpass the record currently held by the 139-metre Mala-Rijeka viaduct in Montenegro.

The railways ministry shared the video on its official Twitter handle and it shows security personnel and other employees posing for photos with the national flag.

“Tiranga soaring to new heights! Our Tiranga flying at the ongoing world’s tallest railway pier bridge project, Noney Bridge in Manipur, on the eve of #IndiaAt75. #HarGharTiranga,” the ministry tweeted along with the video.

Since being posted, the 57-second clip has garnered more than 59,000 views so far and has received more than 4,400 likes and 900 retweets. “Jai Hind!” commented a Twitter user. “Salute Jai Hind,” wrote another.

The Noney bridge is part of efforts to improve connectivity with remote areas in the northeast. The work is being undertaken by North East Frontier Railway.

On August 13, the railways ministry shared a video of the Chenab bridge as the golden joint work, connecting its two halves, was finished.
