Great and nice architecture piece of Engineering. The bridge is very good and very long. Various vehicles are passing on this bridge that’s why there maybe traffic. Must see if you are in Kolkata

We hired a taxi and went from one corner of the bridge to another. It was hell busy. Visit is a must to see the engineering talent involved in the designing of the bridge andso it's a major attraction of Kolkata.
