Updated : November 05, 2018 06:56:53 IST

The Signature bridge over river Yamuna is open to the public. The eight-lane 575 metre bridge connects Wazirabad to the inner city.

It aims to reduce travel time between North and North-East Delhi from 45 minutes to 10 minutes.

The bow shaped, steel pylon of the bridge is at a height of 154 metres which is double the height of Qutub Minar.

From a distance, the pylon looks like hands folded in 'Namaste.' A viewing gallery atop the bridge gives visitors a panoramic view of Delhi. It is being projected as India's first asymmetrical cable-stayed bridge.

It will also have designated selfie points for tourists. The Signature bridge has been constructed by Delhi tourism and transport development corporation.
