Established in 2004, the newly designed cable-stayed New Yamuna Bridge over the river Yamuna was built to minimise traffic flow on the Old Naini Bridge in Allahabad. Also known as the Naini Bridge, it runs from northern to southern Allahabad connecting it to the neighbourhood of Naina. Running over 1510 metres, the bridge is supported by cables to its deck.
The New Yamuna Bridge is one of the first six-lane bridges in India built with modern structure and design. It acts as a link between Allahabad and NH-27 which stretches for almost 370 metres. For the best views, visit the New Yamuna Bridge during dusk when it is lit dazzlingly. To have a sweeping view of the Sangam, visiting during dawn is ideal. During the Magh Mela and Kumbh Mela, you can see the tented cities stretch for miles from this bridge.
