The double leaf bascule section was implemented here so that the ferry services are not interrupted due to the bridge. This was constructed a century ago, and several boats and ships make use of this service till date. The bridge opens into two so that the ferries and ships can cross Palk Strait that connects Rameswaram and Pamban Island.

The Pamban Railway Bridge in Rameswaram is India’s first sea bridge, which was opened in 1914 and still standing even after the cyclone in 1964.
