Engineering that survived the test of time

Deeptangan Pant
The railway track was dotted with fourteen dark tunnels, seven lean bridges and five sturdy viaducts. The tunnels have been dug into the granite and schist hills and one can imagine the struggles of the workers labouring in the hot and rotten air of the claustrophobic tunnels fraught with the danger of collapsing. The viaducts over the Sanguem and Paroda rivers and the Dudhsagar Waterfalls are mentionable. The longest tunnel is the Tunnel No 2 (traveling from Castle Rock in Karnataka to Kulem in Goa) measuring 409.95m.
