CRUICKSHANK, S.O.W, NORTH WEST RAILWAYS THE CONSTRUCTION OF BRIDGE OVER THE INDUS AT OR NEAR KALABAGH WAS CONSIDERED FOR MANY YEARS. SO THE FIRST SURVEYS WERE CARRIED OUT IN 1888 FOLLOWED BY INVESTIGATION FROM 1919 TO 1924. FINALLY IN 1927 THE PROJECT COSTING RS. 40.36 LAC WAS APPROVED FOR CONSTRUCTION. NO PROVISION FOR ROADWAY WAS MADE. THE BRIDGE CARRIED A SINGLE LINE BROAD GAUGE RAILWAY. THE BRIDGE WILL CONNECT THE BROAD GAUGE (5-6\") SYSTEM OF THE RAILWAY ON EAST OF THE INDUS WITH NARROW GAUGE (2_6\") TO THE WEST. WITH THE COMPLETION OF THE BRIDGE AN ALTERNATIVE AND DIRECT ROUTE IS AVAILABLE FROM LAHORE TO WAZIRISTAN. COMMERCIALLY AND STRATEGICALLY THE BRIDGE WILL PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE. THE SITE OF THE BRIDGE IS ABOUT 1.25 MILES BELOW THE GORGE FROM WHICH THE INDUS EMERGES INTO THE PLAINS) THE COURSE OF THE RIVER AT THIS SITE IS STABLE. CHARACTER OF THE RIVER BED AT THIS SITE IS SUCH THAT FROM THE LEFT (MARI) BANK HALF THE WIDTH OF THE BED CONSISTS OF AN UPPERMOST LAYER OF FINE SAND COVERING A LAYER OF COARSER AND SHARPER SAND WITH SMALL PEBBLES. THE UPPERMOST LAYERS OF SAND DISAPPEAR AS THE DEEP WATER CHANNEL IS UN APPROACHED . BELOW THIS IS A COMPACT STRATUM AVERAGING 45\" THICK OF BOULDERS SET HARD IN SAND. THE BED OF THE DEEP WATER CHANNEL IN THE OTHER HALF OF THE RIVER CONSISTS OF LOOSE PEBBLES AND BOULDERS ABOVE THE COMPACT BOULDER BED. AN ALTERNATIVE PROPOSAL OF COMBINED WEIR FOR THAL CANAL HEAD WORKS AND RAILWAY BRIDGE WAS EARLIER REJECTED MAINLY BECAUSE THE SITE OF WEIR WOULD BE 4500\' LONG INSTEAD OF 2500\' AT THE ADOPTED SITE. THE PUNJAB IRRIGATION RECORDS SHOWED THAT AN EXTRAORDINARY HIGH FLOOD OCCURED IN THE YEAR 1878, WHICH WAS CALCULATED AS FROM 757,000 TO 770,000 CUSECS . FOR THE DESIGN OF THE BRIDGE THE MAXIMUM FLOOD WAS TAKEN AS 8 LAC CUSECS. BUT THERE OCCURRED IN 1929 A FLOOD OF HIGHER MAGNITUDE DURING THE CURRENCY OF WORK AND THE HFL AT BRIDGE SITE ROSE TO 705.3\'. IT. WAS ESTIMATED AS 12,00,000 CUSECS. THE DESIGN WAS CHANGED ACCORDINGLY, ADOPTING 12 LAC CUSECS AS PEAK FLOOD DISCHARGE. WATERWAY PROVIDED INITIALLY CONSISTED OF 9 SPANS OF 250\' CLEAR (263\' CENTRE TO CENTRE OF PIERS). AFTER THE FLOOD OF 1929, IT WAS DECIDED THAT THE BRIDGE SHOULD BE EXTENDED TO COVER THE FULL WIDTH OF THE RIVER BETWEEN MARI AND KALABAGH BANKS. THIS ENTAILED AN EXTENSION OF THE BRIDGE AT THE MARI END BY 4 SPANS OF 175\'_4\" C/C. GIRDERS OF STANDARD M.L. OF 1926 (FOR 22.5 TON AXLE LOADS AND A TRAIN OF 2.3 TONS PER FOOT RUN BEHIND THE ENGINE) ARE DESIGNED TO CARRY A SINGLE BROAD GAUGE LINE OF RAILWAY.
