The Golden Bridge

It was built by the British in 1881 across the Narmada River to improve access to traders and administrators to Bombay. The structure was built with rust-resistant iron, and therefore, more expensive than modern steel, lending to the name Golden Bridge. This bridge connects Bharuch and Ankleshwar.

In the year 1881, the British built the Golden Bridge across the River Narmada connecting Ankleshwar with Bharuch. It gets its name from the expensive iron used to construct the bridge that is costlier than modern steel and is strong, rare and rust resistant.

And it is a marvelous bridge. If you happen to be somewhere nearby, don’t miss this bridge.


The traffic between Ankleshwar and Bharuch on this Old NH8 is heavy. And I think only light vehicles are allowed, as the width of the bridge is not much. There can be traffic jams quite often. Keep this in mind when you drive in this road.
