This bridge replace the old ferry service operated through the Kinniya lagoon. Still you can see the old abandoned ferry by a side. This ferry used to operate from the morning to late evening and carry both passengers and vehicles. One of the noticeable thing was that it has a separate control station, which is located few feet above the deck.

There is a boat service available from this point and you can hire a boat and go a round. The path of the journey includes riding under the bridge and taking a turn also. Its costs 600/= per one ride. Seems this service is not properly monitored by the authorities and no life jackets provided.
