interesting project, i wish it was done in record time and no record time of 10 years, and i also hope that people of bombay dont give it a status of a monument, look at it as a simple problem solving method and fuel/time saving attempt which was well deserved 15 years ago. Its another goog very example of how to fool people and chharge for it too in form of a toll.

Bandra Worli sea link on the horizon 

The contract for designing this major infrastructure project was awarded in early 2003. Project scope included the redesigning of the cable-stayed bridges and construction supervision. The bridge consists of a twin four lane deck linking Worli and Bandra across the Mahim Bay. The redesign of the cable-stayed bridges provides for a 500m main span bridge with a single support tower, and a 150m span conventional twin tower cable-stayed bridge spanning the Bandra and Worli creeks, respectively.

Bandra Worli Sea Link Project has been one of the most highly recommended project of all the transport studies done for the metropolitan region during the last forty years. At present, Mahim causeway is the only link connecting western suburbs to island city of Mumbai. The existing north south western corridor is highly congested and during the peak hours results in a bottleneck at Mahim Causeway. Vehicular traffic admeasuring about 1,20,000 PCU travels on the Mahim causeway everyday and during peak hours and it takes about forty minutes to travel from Mahim causeway to Worli, a distance of about 8 km.

Construction of the project link will provide an additional fast moving outlet from the island city to the western suburbs & thereby providing much needed relief to the congested Mahim Causeway. This link will also form a part of the western freeway.

MSRDC, as a part of this project has appointed M/s Dar Consultants (U.K) Ltd. & M/s Dar Consultants (India) Pvt. Ltd. to design, proof check and supervise the various components of the project.
