Abdullah Bridge is one of the prominent bridges in Srinagar, situated near the Tourist Reception Center. Constructed across the Jhelum River, it is the longest over this river within the Kashmir Valley.

Abdullah Bridge, extending about 240 m in length, is near to the Zero Bridge. This three lane bridge also has a fly-over and a viaduct constituting a total length of 377 m. This superstructure consists of six pre-stressed concrete girders for each span and the piers are of reinforced cement structure.

Inaugurated on December 5, 1994, the bridge was named after Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah, the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir.
