India's Bridges: Route 8 Bridges near Vondh in Gujarat (3)

February 2001 (23.3058, 70.4203) Route 8 Bridges

This roadway bridge near Vondh (as well as many other bridges in Gujurat) were damaged by the 2001 M7.6 Bhuj earthquake. It was an interplate boundary earthquake caused by India's movement north into Asia. A similar event in 1819 caused the Indus River to change its course.
