The Indian Ministry of Railways marked 75 years of India’s independence by sharing footage of the national flag flying from the top of the world’s tallest railway pier bridge.
Footage shared by the Ministry of Railways on Sunday, August 14, shows people standing atop a pillar at the Noney Railway Bridge while holding Indian flags.
The Ministry of Railways wrote: “Our Tiranga flying at the ongoing world’s tallest railway pier bridge project, Noney Bridge in Manipur.”
“Tiranga” is the name of the flag of India. August 15 marks 75 years since the end of British rule in the country.
Construction on the Noney Railway Bridge, expected to stand 141 metres tall at completion, was 75% finished in June this year. It will reportedly be the tallest railway pier bridge on the world. Credit: Ministry of Railways via Storyful
