YAMUNA BRIDGE

Holy River Yamuna (the main tributary of river Ganges) separates Allahabad from its satellite town Naini. Earlier the city was connected with Naini by an old rail-cum-road bridge. It was felt that this bridge will not be able to cater the needs of ever increasing traffic between two sides of the river. Moreover, the development of Naini as industrial town has also created traffic pressure on the then existing bridge. Keeping this in view and the future requirements of the national waterway, the traffic plying between Kolkata and Punjab, and the aesthetics of the Sangam where pilgrims from all over the world come to have a holy dip, a concrete cable-stayed four-lane road bridge was constructed at a cost of Rs. 300 crores. The total length of the bridge is 1510 m and width 26 m. The bridge connects old GT Road (NH-2) at Allahabad end and NH-27 at Naini side. This bridge has an added attraction at night.
