Know about Atal Bridge:
The pedestrian-only ‘Atal Bridge’ is a foot-over bridge (FOB) on the Sabarmati river, constructed between Ellis Bridge and Sardar Bridge.
This iconic bridge, with an eye-catching design and LED lighting, is nearly 300 meters long and 14 meters wide in the middle.
The bridge has been built using 2,600 metric tonnes of steel pipes.
The roof of the bridge is made up of colourful fabric and the railing has been built with glass and stainless steel.
The FOB connects the flower garden on the western end of the riverfront and the upcoming arts and culture centre on the eastern end.
Apart from pedestrians, cyclists can also use this bridge to cross the river while avoiding traffic.
It will allow people to view the riverfront from the middle of the water body.
The bridge is designed in such a way that people can approach it from both lower and upper walkways, or promenades of the riverfront.
