AAP rebel MLA Kapil Mishra claims there has been no trial of Delhi’s Signature Bridge

AAP tweeted an image of the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam on Saturday, trying to pass it off as Delhi's Signature Bridge

Rebel AAP MLA, Kapil Mishra, spilt the beans, by disclosing that there have not been any trials of the Delhi’s Signature bridge, which, according to the party officials is due for inauguration by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.

Kapil Mishra, in his tweet, claimed that he was informed by an official, who has been overviewing the construction of the bridge, that neither the construction of the bridge has been completed nor the trial. While pointing out that it is mandatory to examine a cable-stayed bridge before opening it for the public as chances of mishaps are very high, he furthered that the installation of lifts and glass panels are yet to be completed.

Keeping the burgeoning traffic in mind, the Delhi government, in 2004 had proposed to build the country’s first asymmetrical bridge to rid north Delhi of its traffic woes.

In these 14 years, Delhi has had five state elections. A lot has changed but the construction of the 657mt long Signature Bridge over the Yamuna is still a work in progress, way past its deadline of the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

Conceptualised in 2004, the Signature Bridge project was approved by the Delhi cabinet in 2007. Construction was to have started that year itself, but it took off only by 2010, the original completion date. Officials explained the delay saying the project had failed to get an environmental clearance. That approval finally came in 2011 and the deadline was revised to December 2013. The completion date was later pushed to June 2016 and then to July 2017.

In July 2017, the Aam Aadmi government released Rs 100 crore for the project and set a new deadline of March 2018, which was further pushed to April 2018, June 2018, and now, to October 2018.

Amidst all this, Aam Aadmi party’s official Twitter handle was caught trying to pass off an image of the illuminated Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam as the yet-to-be inaugurated Signature Bridge in Delhi.
