Noida's Parthala Bridge, connecting Noida and Greater Noida, is nearing completion, with over 95% of the work finished. It is expected that vehicles will be able to traverse the bridge within a few weeks. The Noida Authority has already inscribed the bridge's name on it, and it has been designed to resemble Mumbai's iconic Bandra-Worli Sea Link. The Parthala Bridge aims to link the twin cities of Noida and Greater Noida while boasting tricolour lighting that adds to its visual appeal.
The Parthala Bridge is a cable suspension bridge being constructed at the Parthala roundabout. The project is set to be handed over to the public in early April 2023. The construction of a 207-meter-long ramp towards Greater Noida is underway, matching the existing 287-meter-long ramp in Noida. The bridge will feature 220 girders and three pillars, with the central section suspended by 28 cables. With a length of 600 meters and a six-lane road, the bridge aims to significantly reduce travel time for drivers, saving them between 30 to 45 minutes.

Construction on the Parthala Bridge began in December 2020, and although it faced several deadline extensions, it should have been completed by June 2022. The most recent deadline of March 31, 2023, has also passed. However, with the majority of construction work finished, the Noida Authority officials now anticipate launching the bridge by the end of May or in the first week of June.
In addition to the Parthala Bridge, a flyover of similar design to the Signature Bridge will be constructed from the Parthala roundabout to Sector 51, 52, 61, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 121, and 122, as well as towards Kisan Chowk. This additional infrastructure will improve commuters' journeys, making transportation between Delhi, Ghaziabad, and Hapur more accessible. The bridge will alleviate the traffic congestion caused by the ongoing construction of the Signature Bridge, benefiting the hundreds of thousands of vehicles that currently face difficulties in the area.
