Construction of the Chanthi Dobar 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.­
