Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project and the unconsidered high risk factors: Can it withstand them?

Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project, when completed, will transform parts of the southern coromandal coast qualitatively. Since historical times, this portion of the coast (Palk Bay, Adam’s Bridge) is used only to fleets of small crafts involved in coastal trading and fishing. Sethu Canal will transform this into a coast that shall start witnessing fleets of large vessels involved in overseas trading pass by.
