Mumbai: Sewri-Worli connector by 2023

Work on the long-delayed Sewri-Worli connector is expected to start soon as the MMRDA has finalised the contractor for the Rs.1,276-crore project. The 4.5km flyover will connect the under-construction Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link with the Bandra-Worli Sea Link, cutting down an hour’s travel time between the two points to just 10 minutes.

“The flyover’s section above the Parel-Prabhadevi tracks will have a double-decker design similar to a section of the Santacruz-Chembur Link Road,” said an MMRDA official. “The contractor, J Kumar Infra Projects Ltd, has been given a deadline of 2023.” To cross the Parel-Prabhadevi tracks section, MMRDA had earlier toyed with the idea of an underground stretch, but dropped it.
