Ellis Bridge is a century old bridge situated in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. It bridges the western and eastern elements of the metropolis throughout the Sabarmati river. This bowstring arch truss bridge became the primary bridge of Ahmedabad constructed in 1892. Later new concrete wings have been constructed on either aspect in 1997 and it changed into renamed as Swami Vivekananda Bridge but remains recognised to people by its antique name. It become determined that steel piers of the bridge got corroded because of pollution within the Sabarmati river.
Consultants appointed for strengthening the bridge, proposed its demolition in 2012 considering constructing a brand new bridge might be cheaper than strengthening the existing one. It was also deliberate to run the BRTS buses on the brand new bridge. It is proposed that the steel arches of the antique metal bridge ought to be preserved and positioned back on the new bridge. Later AMC shelved inspiration of recent bridge for BRTS.
