India's Bridges: Old Majur Bridge across the Machchhu River in Morbi

February 2001 (22.813 Degrees, 70.853 Degrees) Old Majur Bridge

A long multi-span stone masonry arch bridge across the Machu River. It supported railroad tracks on one side of the piers, two lanes of traffic above the piers, and a pedestrian walkway on the other side of the pier.  Perhaps the continuous rail helped keep the railway atop the bridge but several spans of the pedestrian walkway toppled about 50 feet onto the dry river bed during the 2001 earthquake.
