How to find the answer

How to find the answer: Search [Hooghly River truss bridge] to find that the bridge is called the Howrah Bridge (or Rebindra Setu) and is found in India. Search [Howrah Bridge nuts bolts] to learn it uses no nuts or bolts. It was built using nothing but rivets--there are zero bolts in the bridge!
