Sir Arthur Cotton had great plans for Rajahmundry but he decided to build a dam in Dowleswaram due to its proximity to a hill that suited his purpose. The dam consisted of four divisions: Dowleswaram Division, Ryali Branch Division, Madduru division and Vijeswaram division. This was in all 900 yards (800 m) long and 9 feet (3 m) high. Asia’s largest rail-cum-road bridge on the river Godavari> linking Kovvur and Rajahmundry. The First Godavari Rail Bridge was built in the year 1897.
