India's Bridges: Old Surajbari Bridge across the Gulf of Kutch in Gujarat

February 2001(23.200 Degrees, 70.716 Degrees) Old Surajbari Bridge
The Gulf of Kutch at Surajbari is a wide tidal flat. The old bridge across the Gulf was a haunched reinforced concrete bridge with drop in spans that was damaged by the 2001 earthquake. After the earthquake traffic continued on a single lane with alternating directions of traffic. Meanwhile, they hurried to complete the New Surajbari Bridge a mile to the north, which was also damaged by the earthquake.
