Mumbai, June 30 (ANI): Congress president Sonia Gandhi will inaugurate the much-awaited Bandra Worli sea link here today.
The 5.6 kilometers long cable-stayed bridge has been designed to allow for speedy road travel between Bandra and Worli in the busy and traffic-ridden city of Mumbai.
The link would be equipped with state-of-the-art systems for traffic monitoring, emergency support and an automated toll system.
It is an ambitious eight-lane twin carriageway built over the Mahim Creek of Arabian Sea. The bridge rests on two towers, each 126 metres tall or equivalent to a 43-storeyed building.
Spectacular fireworks enthralled the residents, a day before the opening of the link, which will facilitate rapid conveyance from Mumbai's west to south.
"I just loved this event that is happening here. The fireworks were just amazing, I loved to watch it," said Neelam Mansi, a resident.
People said that the new bridge would save a lot of commuting time.
"The construction of the sea link would save people's time," said Leen Montri, another resident. (ANI)
