8 pagesPublished: July 22, 2017

Abstract

Population in India is increasing rapidly and reached approximately 127 crores with average growth of 1.6% every year. Traffic Congestion is one of the major problems that India is facing and it has a massive impact on the quality of air, time of travelling, trade and cost. It has been noted that the government are trying their best in order to come up to this problem by creating structures such as Tunnels, Subways, Flyovers and Bridges. But unfortunately it fails as does not match up with the increase of population and due to less amount of land available for the construction. In this report there is a study on the construction of the buildings and structures with a new technology of constructing under the water. It has been noted that the underwater buildings exist since year 1960 but no one was aware of it. The underwater construction of the buildings can be advantageous to the people and the environment if proper techniques are used and if people get success in achieving such structures. If such technology is adapted everything can be built underwater such as buildings, houses, shopping complex, museums, entertainment hub, restaurants, hotels, sports stadiums etc. This can lead to a progressive and a luxurious life to the people and they can even enjoy their holidays at such places. Encouragement of underwater building is provided by the glamorous view beneath the water of fishes, sea beds, different creatures and coral reefs. This paper discuss about the materials which should be used for the construction of underwater buildings, ways of building and special requirements, the possibility of such constructions, advantages and disadvantages of underwater buildings, the impact of such buildings on environment, effect on the social life and transportation.
