Thane: Mankoli bridge to open in April 2023

The Mankoli bridge being constructed on the creek between Retibunder Mothagaon on the Dombivali side and Mankoli on the Bhiwandi side will be opened for the public in April 2023, informed the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) Commissioner SVR Srinivas. The bridge will reduce the time of commute between Thane-Dombivali from more than an hour to half an hour and will ease traffic congestion in the city.

A meeting was held between top Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Corporation (KDMC) and MMRDA officials at the MMRDA office to discuss the current status of Mankoli bridge to review progress. Srinivas said the work on the bridge is in its final stages and the milestone addition will be completed by April 2023.

The foundation stone for the Mankoli bridge was laid by former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Sep 18, 2016. The completion time set for this bridge was 36 months. Fadnavis, at the time, appealed to the then MMRDA commissioner UPS Madan to complete the work with the help of available technical assistance within the next 18 months.
