Summary: In a monumental achievement, ZETWERK has executed the Bairabi-Sairang new line project in Mizoram, marking a significant leap forward in the state’s infrastructure landscape. Spearheaded by a major railway engineering form in collaboration with the regional railways, this endeavor has enhanced railway connectivity and laid the foundation for the region’s socio-economic development.

Project Overview

The project encompassed a range of critical activities, including the supply, fabrication,
assembling, and erection of 41 railway girders of varying lengths and configurations, from the
impressive 61.0-meter Open Web Girder (OWG) to other essential components like bearings,
sleepers, and track linking to meet the highest quality and safety standards.

Zetwerk’s Role: A Testament to Excellence

Zetwerk was pivotal in fabricating and launching deck slabs of girders for this ambitious project.
Our commitment to precision engineering and efficient project management ensured timely
delivery and installation within the stipulated 18-month timeframe.

Overcoming Technical Challenges

We met technical challenges head-on with innovative solutions. Notably, the launching of Bridge
No. 44, 45, and 46 involved changes in schematics because of the hilly terrain. The operations
team brought and positioned overhead cranes in these physically challenging environments and
adhered to safety norms at every project stage.

Collaboration and Logistics Expertise

Collaboration with twenty-five vendors underscored the project’s scale, while approximately 150
trucks and various other vehicles were mobilized to ensure the smooth transportation of
materials and equipment. This logistical feat highlighted the expertise and efficiency in executing
such a large-scale infrastructure project.

Regulatory Compliance and Safety

Close coordination with the Research Designs and Standards Organization (RDSO) and other
designing agencies ensured compliance with technical specifications and regulatory standards.
This emphasis on compliance safeguarded the structural integrity and safety of the railway
infrastructure, reflecting a commitment to quality and excellence.

Impact and Legacy

The completion of the Bairabi-Sairang new line project has far-reaching impacts. Improved
railway connectivity facilitates smoother transportation and opens new avenues for economic
growth, employment opportunities, and access to essential services for the local communities.

The project’s legacy extends beyond steel and concrete, symbolizing progress, connectivity, and
a brighter future for Mizoram and its people.

A Vision Realized

As trains traverse the newly laid tracks, they embody a vision realized, a testament to
collaborative efforts, technological advancements, and a shared commitment to inclusive
growth. The success of this project sets a precedent for future infrastructure endeavors,
showcasing the transformative power of strategic investments in the region.

Completing the Bairabi-Sairang new line project is a transformative milestone, heralding a new
era of connectivity, development, and prosperity for Mizoram through vision, determination, and
collective effort, leaving an indelible mark on the state’s infrastructure landscape for
