Recent announcements from the Maharashtra unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) hinted at the possibility of the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL), touted as India's longest sea bridge, being opened to the public on December 25. However, despite the optimistic projections, only 97% of the project has been completed, and it appears unlikely to meet the proposed December deadline. The completion date is now anticipated to extend into January 2024.
Initially, the government agency responsible for the project had set December 25 as the inauguration date for this much-anticipated bridge, promising significant reductions in travel time during peak hours—estimated at 30-45 minutes. While the inauguration plans might proceed, the implementing agency has clarified that crucial tasks such as electrification, the installation of poles on the bridge, setting up toll booths, and the integration of the entire system are yet to be completed.
The Mumbai Trans Harbour Link project has been a focal point due to its potential to alleviate congestion and enhance connectivity. As the completion timeline is reassessed, the public eagerly awaits the benefits that the MTHL promises to bring to the region. Stay tuned for further insights into the progress, impact, and construction of this groundbreaking project.
