This bridge was only open for pedestrians till 4th February 2019 & now it is made open to vehicles except 2 & 3 wheeler's . I had the privilege to walk on the third longest cable bridge as from this day no pedestrians or two wheeler were allowed on this bridge. This cable bridge has a excellent views of Mandovi river on both side & Panjim city. View of different boats and casino can be seen is very attractive specially in evening time in light. The view from the bridge is amazing and the wind passes through while we stand on the bridge is crazy.

A 'magic number' of people walking across a bridge makes it sway & crowded bridge. (PC: Whatsapp Group)
