The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) will soon start sharing details of the 22-km Mumbai Trans harbour Link (MTHL) project on social media platforms such as Twitter and YouTube to promote it. The INR 15,000-crore MTHL will be the longest sea-bridge in the country, which will connect Mumbai to Navi Mumbai. It will reduce travel time between Sewri in south Mumbai and Nhava Sheva in Navi Mumbai from nearly two-and-half hours to an hour.
The move comes after the project, which was on paper for decades, finally started taking shape with 13% of it being complete, according to Sanjay Khandare, additional metropolitan commissioner, MMRDA, in-charge of the project.
Khandare said MTHL is one of the most unique projects they have undertaken. “We will post pictures and videos shot by contractors to showcase the project.” He said MMRDA will not appoint an agency to post the content, but use footage shot by contractors. The MTHL account will be managed by MMRDA’s internal staff. Khandare said around 700m of a 2,900-m temporary bridge to lay ground for pillars has been completed along with 90% work on the casting yard.
