Saturday Photohunters Theme : ROAD

This is the Juinagar Foot Over Bridge in Navi Mumbai near Juinagar Railway Station.
It was constructed by SPACPL, who received the Most Outstanding Bridge National Award (Aesthetics), Indian Institution of Bridge Engineers, 1997, for this bridge.
This octagonal-section twin-arch reinforced concrete pedestrian foot-bridge spans 65m across the Sion-Panvel Expressway, near Juinagar Railway Station.

Short flights of steps near the start of each ramp, and climbing up the arch profile on either side of the horizontal, are intended to discourage motor-cyclists from riding over the ramps and the bridge.


  1. I crossed the bridge so many times but today only I got to know details about it.
    Thanks !

  2. I love the bridge in the first shot. Good take on the theme. Happy weekend.

  3. neat design for the bridge. also like the bit about steps to discourage 2 wheelers from using it!

  4. I recognised the bridge before I looked below.
    That is some busy road.

  5. Great photo of the bridge, just right for the theme.

  6. It will be awful to see motorists riding over the ramps. Cool idea to deter that from happening :)
