There is a small bridge, named ‘London Bridge’ at Hafeeznagar in Yakutpura of the old city. How the bridge got its name is an interesting story. During the 2020 deluge, several small bridges over the big nala were damaged or washed away. “When estimates for reconstruction and repairs were being prepared, officials asked the local people the name of the bridge and after discussing it, the locals named it ‘London Bridge’,” Rein Bazaar GHMC Corporator Mohd Wasayuddin says.
