Mumbai To Pune Travel Time To Be Reduced To 90 Minutes Due To Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link (MTHL) Bridge

Mumbai, 12th January 2023: On Wednesday (January 11), CM Eknath Shinde, announced that the Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link (MTHL) bridge would open to traffic in November 2023. According to PTI, around 90% of the project’s civil work has been finished.

The project is funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency, and the implementing authority is the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) (JICA).

The 22-kilometer-long, six-lane MTHL Bridge is termed India’s “longest sea bridge.” Sewri (in Central Mumbai) and Chirle (in Navi Mumbai) will now only need to travel together for 15–20 minutes. Its construction is costing more than Rs 17,000 crore.

The MTHL is anticipated to significantly reduce travel time between Mumbai and Pune. It is anticipated to eliminate 90 minutes of travel time between Lonavla, Khandala, and Mumbai.

Currently, the Navi Mumbai neighborhood of Nhava Sheva has tiny roads that cause traffic jams that take vehicles 45 minutes to clear during peak hours. Vehicles can take a 1.5 km detour and avoid congested regions by using the MTHL.

For those who frequently travel through Pune, the P D’Mello Road-Freeway-Sion-Panvel Expressway-Mumbai-Pune Expressway route is likely to be changed to the P D’Mello Road-Freeway-MTHL-onto-Mumbai-Pune Expressway via Chirle passing by the still-under-construction Navi Mumbai International Airport route.
