Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL): The longest sea bridge in India will bridge the gulf between Mumbai and Navi Mumbai

Apart from reducing travel time between Mumbai and Navi Mumbai to 20 minutes, MTHL is expected to impact real estate prices in New Mumbai in areas like Panvel, Ulwe, and Dronagiri, Surfaces Reporter (SR) Reports

Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently inaugurated the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL), also known as Atal Setu, unveiling a testament to India's growing engineering prowess. This 22-kilometer marvel seamlessly connects Sewri in South Mumbai to Chirle in Navi Mumbai, rewriting the narrative of urban connectivity.

The construction of MTHL involved a consortium of companies, including giants like Larsen & Toubro, Tata Projects, Japan’s IHI Corporation, Daewoo Engineering, and Strabarg Infrastructure of Austria. This collaboration of global engineering expertise has birthed an engineering masterpiece.

Executed in four stages, with general consultants AECOM Asia Company Ltd., PADECO Co Ltd, Dar Al-Handasah, and TY Lin International, MTHL stands as a testament to meticulous planning and international collaboration.The Mumbai Trans Harbour Link project was divided into four distinct packages, three civil packages and one system package..
MTHL isn't just a bridge; it's a technological marvel with a 100-year lifespan. Constructed using advanced Japanese technology, it introduces Orthotropic Steel Deck spans (OSD) ranging from 65 to 180 meters, a groundbreaking achievement in Indian engineering. Beyond its structural brilliance, MTHL boasts lighting poles engineered to withstand deep-sea challenges, featuring a corrosion-free polyurethane coating, galvanization for rust prevention, and a structural design capable of braving high winds.The bridge features an automated toll collection system and an intelligent transport system, seamlessly blending technology and convenience into the fabric of Mumbai's infrastructure. The toll charges, an inevitable part of the journey, have been revised with passenger vehicles on the Sewri-Shivaji Nagar (Ulwe) stretch set at Rs 200, and the 2.5km Shivaji Nagar-Gavhan stretch fixed at Rs 50. For those planning a round trip, the toll will be 1.5 times the one-way charge.

MTHL will catalyse economic transformation. As it weaves its way through Mumbai, it is expected to leave an indelible mark on the property market in Navi Mumbai, catalyzing increased real estate activity, demand, and prices. Areas like Panvel, Ulwe, and Dronagiri, directly linked to the bridge, are poised for a real estate boom as MTHL reshapes the landscape of Navi Mumbai.

As the sun sets over the Arabian Sea, Atal Setu stands tall, not just as a bridge of steel and concrete but as a symbol of connectivity, progress, and the unwavering spirit of a nation building towards a brighter future.
