Gap between coastal road & sea link to be bridged this month, ET Infra


Work to bridge the gap between Coastal Road’s Worli end and Sea Link has begun, with the placing of two of four girders on the southbound arm. The remaining two will be launched by the end of the month. Girders on the northbound arm will be placed subsequently, with a targeted deadline of May, when both arms of Coastal Road are expected to be opened.

The girders

Eight girders will be placed to bridge the gap, four on each arm — southbound (Worli-Marine Drive) and northbound (reverse direction).

Bow string arch girder

The 120-metre girders will be structurally stabilised with a bow string arch, one of which (for the southbound arm) has been assembled and will be transported to the site for launching shortly.

  • The bridge between Coastal Road and the sea link will be 850 metres long, out of which around 270 metres will be made of steel and the remaining of concrete

  • The steel girders are being fabricated at JNPT (Raigad) and Ambala, and transported for assembly onsite. Launching is being done considering tide levels

When will Coastal Road open?

There is still no clarity on the opening date for Coastal Road’s southbound arm. It was scheduled for inauguration on Feb 19. A source said it is expected to be opened by the CM just before the Lok Sabha poll code of conduct comes into effect
