The ‘Panjnad Dam & Weir’ was built 1927-28 by the Punjab Irrigation Department as part of the ‘Sutlej Valley Project’ which included headworks and a network of irrigation canals using the water from the River Sutlej [1]

The records show that in 1927-28 there was a broad gauge(BG) rail line with locomotive working at this site together with tramway equipment . The tramway was still in use in 1928-29 [1].

No further information concerning the use of railways or tramways for this construction have been found
