Images of India : The Bandra–Worli Sea Link…

mwslA cable-stayed bridge with pre-stressed concrete-steel viaducts on either side that links Bandra in the Western Suburbs of Mumbai with Worli in South Mumbai. The bridge is part of the proposed Western Freeway that will link the Western Suburbs to Nariman Point in Mumbai’s main business district. It cost Rs.16 billion (US$250 million) to build. The sea-link reduces travel time between Bandra and Worli during peak hours from 60–90 minutes to 20–30 minutes. The sea-link connects the intersection of the Western Express Highway and Swami Vivekanand Road in Bandra to the Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan Road in Worli. From Worli Seaface, it connects to Mumbai’s arterial Annie Besant Road.
