In a significant infrastructure milestone, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Sewri-Nhava Sheva Atal Setu today, marking the completion of the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link. The bridge, constructed at a cost of ₹17,840 crore, stands as the longest sea bridge in the nation.
The historic foundation stone for this colossal project was laid by PM Modi in December 2016. Paying homage to the former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the bridge has been aptly named Atal Setu.
Spanning a remarkable 21.8 kilometers, the Atal Setu seamlessly connects Sewri in Mumbai to the Nhava Sheva area in Raigad district. This engineering marvel not only signifies a major stride in India’s infrastructure development but also stands as a tribute to the visionary leadership of Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
As the nation eagerly anticipates the inauguration, the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Sewri-Nhava Sheva Atal Setu is poised to redefine connectivity, providing a crucial link between Mumbai and Raigad district. The achievement underscores India’s commitment to enhancing transportation infrastructure, fostering economic growth and regional development.
