Today Larsen & Toubro (L&T,) reported it bagged a sum of Rs. 8,650 crores from the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) for the construction of India’s longest sea link. The sea link named the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) will connect Sewri in Mumbai and Nhava Sheva in Navi Mumbai. The bridge will be 21.8 Km long and estimated to be ready by 2023.

L and T official said, “The proposed Mumbai Trans Harbour Link will serve as an economic gateway to Navi Mumbai connecting to Nhava Sheva Port, the Mumbai Pune Expressway and the Mumbai Goa highway.” The MTHL will be the second longest bridge in the world after the 42 Km link between Huandao and Qingdao in China.

Additional Metropolitan Commissioner of MMRDA, Sanjay Khandare said, “We will start work for MTHL by January 2018. It will take around 4.5 years to complete the construction of the sea link. We can say that in mid 2023 the construction will be completed.”

CEO and MD at Larsen and Toubro, S. N. Subrahmanyan said, “Being a city with a very large population, Mumbai requires a number of important infrastructure to meet its ever increasing needs and we are delighted to have bagged this very crucial mandate that will significantly improve connectivity in and around Mumbai.”

He further added, “We are grateful to MMRDA to have reposed their trust in us and we are confident of executing and delivering this landmark project to quality and in time.”
