ooh yeah...the few parts of Calcutta that actually meet international standards.

Actually, the whole city wouldn't be all tha bad if it wasn't for all the refugees. (nothing against them tho, after all they're in Calcutta cause their government back home persecutes them).

The Vidyasagar Setu bridge is the best one at the moment, but I'm really looking forward to the Second Vivekananda Bridge, as it will be the LONGEST CABLE-StAYED BRIDGE IN ASIA. i hope it will reflect well on a city that the media always portrays as a hellhole populated by beggars...

There is another bridge u/c in Kolkata, called the Second Vivekanada Setu Bridge.

Here's the render.



Here are some pics of the construction. Photo from Luckystreak, of SSC India.











Here's some info about it.

Thanks! :)

I heard somewhere the Howrah bridge is one of the most heavily trafficked in the world as far as pedestrains, is that right? :cheers:
I am not sure about that :dunno:. Maybe u could ask the question in the Indian forums. The thread in the following link is where we discuss abt brides and all. Maybe somebody can answer u there :).
