The Mumbai Trans Harbor Link (MTHL) is almost finished, and it will likely open to the public in time for the holiday season of 2023. The MTHL is almost 90% finished, and transfer loops and ramps currently link the main bridge to other highways. Eight ramps make up the Sewri Interchange, including two that link Hajibandar Road, four that connect Mumbai and Navi Mumbai to the Eastern Expressway, and two that do the same for the Sewri-Worli Connector. Six ramps at Shivajinagar Interchange lead to the coastal road that CIDCO is proposing. Navi Mumbai, JNPT, and MTHL would be connected to SH-54 by four ramps with 2+2 lanes each.
There will be four (Cloverleaf) Highway Junctions on NH-348 where the connection will join the National Highway. There are four emergency lanes at this site. This makes it easier to travel from Mumbai to Goa, Pune, and the JNPT port. The 1-kilometer cable-stayed bridge, also known as the Sewri – Nhava Sheva Trans Harbor Link, spans the harbor and connects Navi Mumbai, a satellite city of Mumbai, with Sewri on the island of Mumbai.
About 16.5 km of the overall length is a sea, while the remaining 5.5 km island. The bridge’s layout and design, which cost 17,843 crores, are identical to those of the King Fahd Causeway Bridge in Saudi Arabia and the 36 km Hangzhou Bay Bridge in China (26 km). A massive facility is being constructed by the Mumbai Metropolitan Area Development Authority (MMRDA).
It claims to ease traffic inside the city, particularly in South Mumbai, as well as from Mumbai to Pune and Goa. When finished, it will be India’s longest dock and have a daily capacity of 70,000 cars. In September of this year, Prime Minister Eknath Shinde declared, “We will be able to open the MTHL to the public before December next year.” Trans Harbor Link will also aid in the general development of Navi Mumbai as well as specific areas of Raigad, Navi Mumbai, and the Konkan region, according to MMRDA authorities.
As a result, pollution will be reduced, according to prior statements made by MMRDA officials. The project’s construction started in 2018.
