The location is scenic because Adyar river connects to Indian ocean here and a bridge broken in the middle makes it different from other bridges.
The bridge was built reportedly to facilitate movement of fishermen across the river, but it broke down due to weather and monsoon over time and was never fixed. Right now people flock here with touristic interests
There's no proper road to reach broken bridge. An existing road is narrow and passes through fishing hamlet and has occasional bad sections, which may be difficult for regular cars negotiate. Veteran drivers and off road enthusiasts do reach broken bridge with their vehicles. The location is also considered unsafe and police have put up a signage with warnings.
Local folks are often found fishing around this area
