    The Mumbai Trans Harbour Link, a new life-line connecting India’s financial capital to the mainland, has been opened for public use today. The 21.8-km long bridge connects Sewri, which is near the South of Mumbai, and various parts of what is being dubbed “Third Mumbai” – essentially parts of Navi Mumbai that border the upcoming international airport.

    1. MTHL toll costs Rs 250, return journey priced at Rs 375
    2. Daily pass costs Rs 625, monthly pass priced at Rs 12,500
    3. Expected to cut travel time for Mumbaites headed to Pune, Mahabaleshwar, Goa

    Also called the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Smruti Sewri-Nhava Sheva Atal Setu, the MTHL has has 6 lanes (3+3 lanes) plus one emergency lane on both sides, and spans 21.8km; about 16.50km is over the sea and 5.5km is over land. With a speed limit of 100kph, the bridge is expected to be handy for outstation travellers to and from South Mumbai. There are interchanges at Sewri, Shivaji Nagar, SH-54 in Jasai and at Chirle on NH-348.

    MMRDA and the government have set the toll price at Rs 250 for a one-way journey, while a return pass will cost Rs 375. The price of a daily pass is set at Rs 625, while a monthly pass costs Rs 12,500. While most of the tolling will be automatic (open tolling) so the flow of traffic will not be affected, there will also be a traditional cash lane for those who want to pay cash.

    Here’s more details on the feat of engineering that the MTHL is, how eco-friendly and safe it is and what it’s like to drive on India’s longest sea bridge.
