Yeah you both are right.
It is a reference to an old bridge with 11 arches / 12 piers.

Any idea when are they going to open the ramp that directly connects from DND to the flyover? Currently one has to go further ahead and take that U turn, which is quite a pain as that entire stretch has a heavy traffic jam.

I had read a couple weeks back that the ramp is ready. And I can see that the ramp road already has tar and all done. They have kept blockers at the entrance of the ramp. God only knows what they're waiting for !
