ABOUT

Surat has a golden place in the history. We have rich heritage in terms of architecture and infrastructure. Surat is also known as the city of flyovers. So today let us share with you the story of the oldest bridge of Surat. Any guesses? It is Hope Bridge. It is the oldest bridge of Surat.

Definitely an untold story is connected with it which each Surati should know. Let’s take you all back in time when we were not independent nation. Then Sir Theodore Cracraft Hope was the collector of Surat. He spent eight years as Collector of Surat. Interestingly, Hope Bridge was the first structure to be built in public- private partnership by the residents of Surat, Narmada, Bharuch and Rander towns, according to historians. It was built over River Tapi in Chowk area. It took four years to complete the construction and finally on 1st May, 1877 it was inaugurated. Then the cost of cinstruction of this bridge was INR 8,13,000/-. Recently it was under bad condition as well as required attention as it was dangerous and required maintenance.

Now it is totally renovated by our SMC with keeping the old look as it is. The bridge is used by many photographers. As a part of the research and their heritage walk, one cannot miss this one. Many locals visit this bridge and relax. Sunrise and the sunset is the best time to enjoy the beauty and view.
