Native Jetty Bridge is located in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. It connects the city with the Port of Karachi. The modern port started its operations in 1854 during the British Raj, when a mole was constructed to connect city to the harbour. After few years Native Jetty Bridge was built with other important bridges in the area.[1] Due to increased traffic congestion, a new wider bridge was constructed and replaced the old one. Today, the old bridge has been converted to a Food Street and named as Port Grand Food and Entertainment Complex.
