Chanthi Dobar Bridge - Construction of a suspension bridge over the Bhagirathi River (India)

Since the construction of the Tehri Dam, the old bridge is now submerged by the Tehri reservoir that floods the Bhagirathi valley.­

The Tehri Dam was (and still is) a very controversial project, as it flooded two valleys resulting in the destruction of numerous villages and a town (Tehri), all now submerged, and forced the relocation of about 100,000 people.­
