A road and rail link between India's Rameswaram and Sri Lanka's Thalaimannar could be a reality soon as the government of India has asked Asian Development Bank to carry out pre-feasibility study for financing the project across Palk Strait between India and Sri Lanka.

A short boat ride used to connect the railway lines that ended at Thalaimannar in Sri Lanka and Dhanushkodi in India, which was in operation till 1966.

The Project may be a combination of bridge and underwater tunnel which may allow unhindered movement of ships.

As the project is in the conceptual stage, it is too early to comment on the time bound programme of this project.

Minister of State for Road Transport & Highways, Pon. Radhakrishnan informed the Rajya Sabha that the government of Sri Lanka is yet to give its nod to the project.
