About Howrah Bridge


Howrah Bridge, also known as the Rabindra Setu, spans the Hooghly River connecting Howrah to Kolkata. The Howrath Bridge, opened for use in 1943, is one of Kolkata’s major landmarks and the 6th longest cantilever bridge in the world. The Howrath Bridge plays an important part in the life of residents as a major transport link. A 2007 study estimated that other 90,00 vehicles pass over the bridge each day, along with an even greater number of pedestrians. Despite being over 75 years old the Howrah Bridge still bears loads well in excess of the maximum calculated by the engineers who originally designed the structure.

Howrah Bridge in Kolkata

The Howrath Bridge is 705 metres long, 82 metres high and 30.8 metres wide and made entirely of steel joined together by rivets. The bridge has a central span of 460 metres supported by towers on each river bank. The bridge is colossal and a structure that local people are very proud of, which is the principal reason why the bridge is still maintained today rather than simply replaced by a newer design.
