I walked across it numerous times. It's a major bridge with tens of thousands of cars using it. It's a mad house.

Not really an attraction as it's a highway bridge. Filled with people standing on it randomly during traffic.

It's an interesting thing to see. It gives you a great view of the Nile. Just be careful when you travel over it to avoid rush hour traffic jams.
