It is the first asymmetrical cable-stayed bridge in India and will offer a panoramic view of the city. Four elevators will take a total of 50 people to the top of the bridge. It will have designated spots for selfie-crazed Delhiites. The bridge will have a 154-metre-high glass viewing box, which is at double the height of Qutub Minar.
Manish Sisodia, deputy chief minister described it as a “civil engineering spectacle”, people can enjoy a panoramic view of the city from there, as in the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
The bridge will be thrown open for public from Monday.
