Question
How the foundation of bridge is provided in sea(water) ?

Answer
Dear Surajlaghe

It should  be done inside a under air pressure reservoir. Suppose a reservoir ( like a hat ) under sea on alluvium bed under the sea. The water will be blow out of the reservoir using air pressure. Then you will have an almost dry media. You will need to cut out all alluvium to reach to the bed rock. Then you can construct your foundation .
