Mumbai gears for a "sea" change!

The 40-minute drive across 1930s colonial-era Mahim Causeway from Worli to Bandra that includes battling 23 light signals and thousands of motorists is about to undergo a dramatic "sea" change!

On June 30th, 2983 days, 2.57 crore man hours, numerous delays and 340-million-dollars later, the Bandra-Worli Sealink will open to traffic.

The eight lane freeway hopes to cut down the commute to under 15 minutes and is expected to carry over a 100,000 vehicles a day from the suburbs to South Mumbai.

The spectacular engineering marvel has also inspired Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) to share it with non-motorists in the way of a ferry trip to the sea link from Bandra-Kurla Complex. This would be in addition to the planned open deck bus tour of the bridge.

Either way the ride across the bridge does not come free! The one-way toll is set at Rs 50 for light motor vehicle (cars), Rs 75 for mini-buses and Rs 100 for heavy motor vehicles (buses and trucks).

Congrats Mumbai! If anything this means easier access to all those restaurants, bars, and spas listed on Grubhogs Mumbai!
