Railway bridge over river Sharavathi

This 2KM long railway bridge over river Sharavathi, is situated near Honnavara in Karnataka. This stands as the longest railway bridge in the state. The bridge also provides a walkway, which is a preferred means to cross the river for many people in the area. The alternative to this is a longer (12 KM) route via roads. The north end of the bridge ends in a short tunnel through a small hillock. Climb to the top of this hill and the entire span of the bridge comes into clear view. Here’s the bridge basking in the mild sunlight at dusk.
