Revival of Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link

August 30, 2010

Sewri-Nhava Sheva Trans Harbour link mapThe Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) will take over the biggest and most delayed infrastructure project — the Sewri-Nhava Sheva Trans Harbour Link. After decades of deliberation, and unsuccessful bid process by Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation to get private participation, it is MMRDA’s mandate to organize for funds to construct MTHL.

It is now proposed to extend the 22km link planned to connect Sewri to Chirle village in Nhava, to the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, by adding another 28kms. It will now join the Mumbai-Pune Expressway somewhere near Khopoli. The extension translates to about 500 Crores in expenses but would provide much better connectivity.

The masterplan for Navi Mumbai development has seen partial growth limited to the Northern part; the southern half is still untapped, principally because of the lack of easy access to Mumbai city. The southern half of Navi Mumbai with over 2,500 hectares of land available for housing presents an opportunity to decongest Mumbai. In this context, the proposed Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) connecting Sewri to Nhava Sheva is expected to be a catalyst of development of the city by promoting horizontal growth as against the vertical growth experienced over the past few years.

MTHL is designed to have a Metro rail line along the multi-lane roadways, which may not be commissioned in the first phase of construction. The cumulative impact of this infrastructure project would benefit real estate development around origination zone in Sewri. The imminent advantages of being located near MTHL and hence faster reach to industrial units, SEZ, and Port will create demand for residential projects with associated commercial & retail components.

    this is good news!! its high time ppl realised the importance of growth of navi mumbai. how much can we congest a city thats already bursting at the seam??? nothern part of navi mumbai already has good connectivity owing to a good linkage with the city. The trans harbour link will pave way for the city of the future where people enjoy the quiet comfort of staying away from the crowded city and the same time can travel conveniently to their workplace.

    PS: to all those planning to invest in real estate i wud say think abt navi mumbai seriously now!! 🙂
