MUMBAI: The provision of Rs 1,200-crore has paved way for the speedy implementation of the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link project (22-km, Rs.17,843 crore). The Link will provide direct access to Navi Mumbai, new International Airport and will be a convenient gateway to Mumbai-Pune Expresswayand further to Southern India. The Link will also help develop the main land.
The link was first proposed 40 years ago and was backed by several industrialists such as JRD Tata and Dhirubhai Ambani since it promises to decongest Mumbai in a big way. It will bring Navi Mumbai and Raigad areas close to South Mumbai by road and if developed a railway parallel to that, could be a boon for commuters.
