BMC Approves Reconstruction of Three City Bridges

In a joint meeting held on Thursday, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and officials from the Maharashtra Rail Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (MRIDCL) approved the reconstruction of three city bridges: Curry Road Bridge, Matunga Bridge, and Mahalaxmi Bridge.

"The preliminary phase study of these bridge works is currently underway. Reconstruction of these bridges will help reduce traffic congestion and save time and fuel," stated the BMC.

The BMC will cover the reconstruction costs, while MRIDCL will handle the actual construction work. During the meeting, progress on ongoing projects, including Ray Road, Byculla, Tilak (Dadar), and Ghatkopar bridges, was also reviewed. The BMC urged for expedited work on these bridges.

As of now, the Ray Road Bridge is 77% complete and is expected to open for traffic by November 2024. The Byculla Bridge is 42% complete, with an anticipated opening in October 2025. The Tilak Bridge has reached 8% completion, and the Ghatkopar Bridge is currently 14% complete.

Meanwhile, the railway administration informed the BMC about the status of three other bridges: Olivant Bridge in Mazgaon, Arthur Bridge, and S Bridge at Byculla. According to a letter from Central Railway dated April 24, 2024, these bridges are in good condition and do not require reconstruction at present. A review of their condition will be conducted by the Railways in 10 to 15 years, with further action to be based on that review. Consequently, no immediate work on these bridges will be undertaken, the BMC noted.
