Delhi’s Signature Bridge to be ready by next year

DELHI

The Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation (DTTDC) early this month informed the National Green Tribunal (NGT) that Rs. 800 crore had been spent on the bridge that is 675 metres long and 154 metres high and will have two carriageways of four lanes each.

The bow-shaped, cable-supported steel bridge — modelled on the London Bridge — is being built as a tourist spot in collaboration with Gammon and two firms from Italy and Brazil.

The DTTDC has also refuted allegations by a petitioner that no environment impact assessment study was done for the project and it never got environment clearance from the forest ministry, resulting in damage to the river.
