Signature Bridge finally opened to public!!

Finally, the Signature Bridge is open for public which took 14 years to build. The bridge is built over Yamuna River in Northwest Delhi to reduce travel time between North and Northeast Delhi. In the second phase of development, the Signature Bridge will be made into a tourist spot. The 575-meter-long suspension bridge is one of the costliest projects of Delhi government. The bridge was finally completed at a cost of Rs. 1,594 crore. It will have a 154-meter-high glass viewing box which will give a panoramic view of the city. The height of the viewing deck is double the height of Qutub Minar. Four elevators, each having a capacity of 50 people, will take people on top of the bridge. To capture this moments the bridge will also offer several tourist points for visitors. The viewing deck won't be open for the public before February. In the next two months, the elevators are expected to become functional. The bridge will decongest traffic on NH-9 and will make it smoother on the Ring Road. It is expected that travel time between Loni and Ghaziabad will be reduced by half an hour. By opening of this Signature Bridge, traffic will be reduced at the Kashmere Gate ISBT area as goods vehicles coming from Karnal would have an alternative route.
