The great infra dream

The foundation for Mumbai’s future is being laid through a mega infrastructure makeover that ranges from a drain capacity expansion to a series of sea bridges

The harrowing Bandra to Haji Ali 60-minute ride through narrow lanes and 27 traffic signals is set to turn into a breezy 13-minute mid-sea drive.

Mumbai, synonymous with its traffic gridlock, is looking to the sea for a solution. Apart from the completed Bandra-Worli Sea Link, the city is likely to get 46 km of roads running over the sea in the next decade.

The government has planned four more sea links that will connect Versova to Nariman Point on the western side and Nhava to Sewri on the eastern side. If all goes as per plan, Mumbai will get its second sea link — Worli to Haji Ali — by 2014.
