Once upon a time, this land mark bridge used to be the hub of activity, but is it almost depilitated with many feeling it too risky to use. Still people gather there in the evenings, stay up to late night, for a change.

Nothing particularly established for tourists to interact with, but it is a nice view up the Krishna river to the North, the South is a very dry and ugly river bed.

The place is quite lively in the evening and the barrage is brilliantly illuminiated . If you need to get a good view of the lighting cross over to the Guntur side and take a right, going to the capital, just stand at the corner and observe the beautiful lighting of the barrage.

Given the limited number attractions in Vijaywada this place could be good option just to have a walk on the bridge. PS - There is light show that happens on the bridge a can be viewed from the banks of the river where Haritha Berm Park Resort is situated.
