India's Bridges: Route 8 Bridges near Vondh in Gujarat (2)

February 2001 (23.3058, 70.4203) Route 8 Bridges

This railroad bridge is just a pair of steel girders that supports ties and rails. No bridge deck and no ballast. Apparently such a minimalist approach works since one percent of India's population (over 10 million people) travel by rail every day.
