    We would require high-end technical assistance to do such a project. Which can only be provided by France.

    What does France have to do with it? It is for India-Lanka transport.

    We won't need to go under the sea. We can actually build a long bridge or viaduct. India has the capability, and the money. The question is its commercial feasibility.

    it should not be built as it will effect the most precious coral reef in & around that area. It will change the whole ecosystem.

    ONLY the ancient bridge which is also known as Ram Setu has
    religious and sentimental value for Hindus

    And right now there is a plan to clear it and make the
    Sethusamudram shipping canal project

    NOBODY has asked for a new bridge

    If a new bridge is made what purpose will it serve

    Indian tourists visiting SL will not use it ; the sea will be permanently blocked

    BAD idea :namaste:

    Sethusamudram canal project should be cancelled as it is the only visible proof about Ramayana. Destroying this will not only hurt Majority Hindus but also whole ecosystem in & around the area. Coral reefs are very important in the ecosystem of the sea.

    Also it is a very shallow area as the depth ranges from 3feet to 30feet & only very small to medium( low) range of ships & boat can traverse. It is very expensive to maintain the canal because it involves silt & this silt needs to cleared every once in 2 months for ship movement. This is not at all a viable option economically as well as ecologically.

    Only gain for the current government would be to hurt the majorities Hindus & showcase themselves as secular. Pachauri committee report‎ also recommends the same but this government wants to go ahead.

    As far as I can tell by reading about it, the bridge was never an actual engineered bridge.
