Delhi’s Signature Bridge Is Ready To Amaze People From 154-meter Height

Delhi’s Signature Bridge is finally finished after 14 years of construction and it's ready to give you a spectacular view of the city.

Though it’s a bit late, Delhi’s Signature Bridge is finally completed. The bridge is located in the northwest of Delhi, over the Yamuna; and it’s ready for Delhi Deputy Manish Sisodia to introduce. People are all welcomed to attend the ceremony and admire the marvel. It took 14 years to build the bridge and the city authority will inaugurate it on Monday.

Delhi Signature Bridge

According to Sisodia, from the top of the bridge, Delhi citizens can enjoy the wide spectacular view of India’s capital, just like people can view Paris from the Eiffel Tower. There are four elevators with a total capacity of 50 people, in which people will be carried to the top of the bridge.

There’re a few things to know about the bridge:

1. There is a view box on the bridge for visitors to view the city. The box is 154 meters high, which double the height of Qutub Minar – the world’s second tallest minaret.

2. People will go to the top of the bridge in four elevators which can carry up to 50 people.

3. The bridge is 574 meters long with a selfie spot where visitors can capture their memorable moments.

4. This is the first bridge in India to be cable-stayed and asymmetrical.

5. The bridge is expected to reduce the transport time from north to northeast Delhi and vice versa. Also, in its second development phase, the bridge will be made a tourist attraction.

6. In 2014 when the bridge was announced, it was projected to cost about Rs 494 crores, but because of adjustments done with 2010 CWG in mind, the cost estimation went up to Rs 1, 131 crores.

7. The bridge not only missed several deadlines, but it also ended up costing Rs 1594 crores.

8. The bridge will reduce the traffic load on Wazirabad bridge.

Below is the post by Manish Sisodia about the new bridge on Twitter. His Tweet drew attention from thousands of people and the topic may become even hotter as the ceremony is coming close.
