A 800m long railway bridge spanning the rough terrain to provide a key link in the railway project which should connect Istanbul, Turkey, with Isfahan, Iran, is described. It was completed in less than one year. The single track railroad bridge was constructed nearly 120m above the valley floor at a remote location 29 km west of Khoi, Iran or about 800 km north of Teheran. The overall length of the bridge amounts to 442.50m, and consists of a girder and trussed arch.
