Ghatkopar Koparkhairne Bridge & Rewas Karanja Bridge - 14.027

Concept

The aim of this study is to provide recommendations and specific guidelines for the development of a major integrated infrastructure. The study is supported and consolidated by a proposal for the implementation of two major bridges, of strategic importance, in order to provide connectivity at two strategic locations, that will generate a significant impact, at regional scale, on the Mumbai transport network. The two study cases, the Ghatkopar Koparkhairne Bridge (GK) and the Rewas Karanja (RK) Sea Link, are essential connections on a macro scale for the transport system, within Mumbai Metropolitan Region  (MMR). These two connections will help in connecting the Island city with Mumbai hinterland.

Specific features

The GK Bridge across Thane Creek, will connect the Salsette island with Navi Mumbai, linking the western suburbs of Mumbai via Jogeshwari Vikhroli Link Road JVLR to Thane Belapur Industrial Corridor. This will be an additional crossing point over the Thane creek, between the two existing bridges at Airoli (north of GK) and Vashi (south of GK). The RK Bridge across Rewas sea channel, will support the development of various areas, ports in MMR and allow a 70 km shortcut for local commuters travelling to Alibaug. This bridge also plays an important role in connecting with the southern parts of MMR Region.The study consists of a 'state-of-the-art' bridge design, meeting the international standards of technical excellence and aesthetics while taking into account the strong MMR urban and landscape context but also aspects of sustainability, maintenance, ecology and economy.
