Mumbai, the commercial capital of India has been made proud by the introduction of a cable-stayed bridge of 600 metre long across the sea.
This engineering marvel, first of its kind in India on sea took 10 years for completion (started in 2000 and completed in 2009) and estimation of Rs 1600 crores ($ 400 million approximately). It’s a pleasant experience to drive between Bandra and Worli in just 7 minutes which otherwise takes more than an hour if taken a normal route. There is a view point on top of pylon (pillar) that gives the panoramic view of the city which is famous for the sky line in south Mumbai. This 8 lane concrete bridge linking Bandra and Worli across the Mahim Bay held in position by steel cables will become a permanent symbol for Mumbai beating the Gateway of India.
