The broken bridge over the mouth of the river Adyar.

The river Adyar flows west to east, across the southern half of Chennai, to meet the Bay of Bengal. Thus creating two very different beaches for the city.

 

To connect the Marina and the Elliots (also called Besant Nagar) beach, the government began building a small foot bridge over the Adyar's mouth.

During a severe thunderstorm and resultant flooding of the river, the bridge's supports gave way and thus we now have the Broken Bridge.

 

PS. A small break from Chennai Photowalk 5. I have loads of photos to process.
