New Delhi, Nov 4  After missing many deadlines, the iconic and much-awaited Signature Bridge on the Yamuna was inaugurated on Sunday by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and will open for the public from Monday.

Claimed by the government to be the country’s first asymmetrical cable-stayed bridge, with the gesture ‘namaste’, the bridge will help people to enjoy a panoramic view of the city from 154-meter high observation deck — to be open in around two months.

“Some final work is left in the high observation deck and it will be opened earlier next year, while the roads will open from Monday,” an official told .

The 575-metre-long suspension bridge, proposed in 2004 and approved by the Delhi cabinet in 2007, will reduce the travel time between North and North-East Delhi.

The bridge, connecting Wazirabad across the river Yamuna, will take vehicular pressure off the existing Wazirabad bridge.

It will also connect the Outer Ring Road on the western bank of the river with Wazirabad road on the eastern side.
