Manakudi Bridge

Place : Manakudi , Kanyakumari District

Location : Manakudi is 9 km northwest of Kanyakumari.

Route : Nagercoil ----> Suchindram ----> Manakudi

This place has become more prominent after the tsunami.

A 160-m-long bridge had been commissioned in
2002 to connect the villages of Melamanakudi and
Kelamanakudi on opposite banks ofthe Pazhyar River.

The bridge went missing after the tsunami.

It was originally built with four spans, all of which
were washed away by the tsunami. The two end spans
traveled upstream by 100 m and were beached on the banks;
the central spans were not visible,apparently having
sunk into the waters.

The substructure appeared to be intact except at the apron. There
wereno restraints between the superstructure and the foundation.
