In the Kaziranga National Park, the Army may assist in constructing Bailey bridges.
- A Bailey bridge is a specific kind of prefabricated, transportable truss bridge. It was created by the British in 1940–1941 for use by the military in the Second World War.
- The benefit of a Bailey bridge is that it doesn’t need to be assembled using heavy machinery or specialized tools. The steel and wood bridge pieces were so small and lightweight that they could be transported by trucks and put in place by hand without the use of a crane.
- Tanks can be carried on the bridges without any issues.
