MMRDA’s Rs 1,300 cr Sewri-Worli connector by 2023
Construction work on the long-delayed Sewri-Worli connector is expected to start soon as the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has finalised the contractor for the Rs 1,276 crore project.
The 4.5 km flyover will connect the Bandra-Worli Sea Link (BWSL) with the under-construction Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link (MTHL), cutting down an hour’s travel time between the two points to just 10 minutes.
An MMRDA official told the media that the flyover’s section above the Parel-Prabhadevi tracks would have a double-decker design similar to a section of the Santacruz-Chembur Link Road. The contractor, J Kumar Infra Projects Ltd, has been given a deadline of 2023.
To cross the Parel-Prabhadevi tracks section, MMRDA had earlier come up with the idea of an underground stretch but did not go through with it.
