The Thane Creek Bridge project is a remarkable endeavour that culminated in the creation of the iconic Basket Handle Steel Arch Bridge. This extraordinary steel structure spans 100 metre across the picturesque Thane Creek, serving as a vital link between Kalwa and Thane. The project focused on constructing a dedicated bridge over Thane Creek, enabling unidirectional traffic flow from Thane to Kalwa. The project's fundamental features encompassed a multipronged strategy for efficient traffic management and connectivity enhancement. The project’s centrepiece, the Basket Handle Steel Arch Bridge, isn’t just a functional connection; it’s a fusion of architectural marvel and engineering excellence. The Thane Creek Bridge project, initiated by the Thane Municipal Corporation, emerged as a transformative solution to enhance traffic circulation and alleviate congestion at pivotal junctions. The project’s completion, despite setbacks from delayed NOCs, is a testament to the execution team's strategic prowess and unwavering commitment to excellence.The project was executed through Engineering, Procurement, and Contracts (EPC) mode. This framework facilitated a systematic approach to design, procurement, and construction, ensuring comprehensive project management.
