Not really an attraction as it's a highway bridge. Filled with people standing on it randomly during traffic.

The 6th of October Bridge is a major feature in the traffic flow in this mega city. A huge construction that carries millions of cars, it is definitely one of the infrastructures that make life and commuting in Cairo less chaotic than it currently is.
