The old Yamuna bridge was reopened for vehicular movement today after remaining shut for four days due to rise in the water level beyond the danger mark.

The water level in the Yamuna river has started receding since yesterday and it went below the danger mark of 204.83 metres today.

In his official order, District Magistrate (east and Shahdara) K Mahesh directed the Delhi Police and its traffic wing to open the bridge for traffic movement with immediate effect.

On Sunday, the authorities had closed the bridge for traffic movement due to rise in the water level of Yamuna.

According to the irrigation and flood control department, the water level is expected to recede further in the coming days.
