“Crowded City Conjunction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

It joins most of Cairo together trying to make shortcuts to places, yet it's crowded. A shortcut in which you spend a lot of time to reach your destination.

“Yes it's just a bridge, but its over the Nile...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

Sunset and in the evening it's a nice place to watch the water and the world go buy. There is people selling things, lovers chatting and you can see the river boats with music and fun going around the nile. If you like to live in the slow lane and enjoy what the locals like, stop here and enjoy!

“Not a place to visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

I wonder how come this is an attraction. It is a long bridge (around 13 kms) that most people drive on daily to go to work. There is a portion that passes over the Nile. Many people stand up there watching the Nile. Nice view at night. However, I don't rate it as an attraction.

“Bridge over the Nile.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

What can you say about a bridge? The traffic is busy, impatient and noisy and not to be tackled during rush hour!!!

“Ho Hum......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

Who nominates these for rating? Nothing special about this bridge, unless it was the time taken to complete it. This is simply the arterial built to take the load off the traffic getting to the airport. There is a shortt section of bridge that is architecturally pleasing. You'll probably go over this bridge without realizing it, however.
