The Narmada River Bridge is a great sight for all those who take a road trip from Bhopal to Nagpur via the Itarsi route.
This holy river and also the lifeline of Madhya Pradesh is quite a wide river at this location. The road and the railway bridge run parallel to each other.
It is quite an experience to watch the trains cross the railway bridge while you stand on the road bridge. While I was standing on the road bridge, I saw about 4 goods train, 1 passenger train and 2 rail engines all in a span of ten minutes.
It was extremely heartening to see the Narmada river have decent water flow especially in times when the rest of the state and most of the country are having extreme hot weather and subsequently dry rivers.
