Situated on the Nandyal - Giddalur Section , the Dorabavi Viaduct is yet another engineering monument in the South Central Railway. The serene forest location of this bridge on the Nallamala Hills of the Rayalseema region of Andhra Pradesh adds its own exotic aura to make this a picnic spot. This Viaduct was opened for metre gauge traffic in the year 1887. It was one of the tallest and most picturesque train route. Now it is in Dismantled & disuse due to the construction of an alternative route , as part of gauge conversion between Nandyal and Giddalur. A new Bogada tunnel, about 1.6 km in length and a new Dorabavi Viaduct located at a much lower altitude were constructed at a huge expense.
