I was driven across this bridge during Uber rides whilst in Cairo in Nov 2019. It seemed like a very average bridge without much to make it worthy of a visit. Entirely functional as a bridge, but nothing to see as a tourist attraction.

A bridge that links two areas of Cairo (Tahrir square, and Gezira Island) is a busy thoroughfare most times of the day. having traversed it a number of times on our last Egyptian vacation, I found it an easy way to get from Giza to the Egyptian Museum and then to Zamalek for lunch. You get a good view of the Nile River from the bridge even in a car. The name of the bridge comes from the date that the Egyptian army crossed the Suez canal to start the 1973 Arab–Israeli War (Yom Kippur War).

The 6th October Bridge is a pedestrian bridge and elevated highway in central Cairo that spans the River Nile twice. About half a million people in Cairo use the bridge on a daily basis and my goodness it's busy virtually all the time. The bridge is of a girder design and designed more for functionality than aesthetics. It's an impressive feat of engineering, but not much to look at night or day. The road is so busy I only walked on it for a bit before deciding it just wasn’t worth the effort.

The 6th of October Bridge links the East and West banks of the Nile in downtown Cairo & is not a particularly impressive structure - rather a convenient transportation necessary.

Most people think of the sixth of October bridge from a traffic point of view... There is a hidden treasure that they don’t see... It’s hidden in plain sight as the bridge crosses the Nile. The side walk in that section offers a marvellous walk and view of the Nile, Tahrir square, and Zamalek Island.
