Rajiv Gandhi Sea Link -  Bandra-Worli Sea Link


Rajiv Gandhi Sea Link (Bandra-Worli Sea Link)The 5.6 kilometer long Bandra Worli Sealink, most commonly known as Rajiv Gandhi Sea Link is an engineering marvel that aims to ease traffic in Mumbai. Constructed across the Arabian Sea, linking Bandra in the Western Suburbs of Mumbai with Worli in South Mumbai, this sea-link reduces travel time between Bandra and Worli during peak hours from 60-90 minutes to 20-30 minutes.

The highlights of the Rajiv Gandhi Sea Link are the two aesthetically designed cable-stayed bridges. The link bridge consists of twin continuous concrete box girder bridge section for traffic in each direction. Each bridge section except at the cable-stayed portion is supported on piers typically spaced at 50 meters. The bridge weighs nearly 50,000 African elephants and the length of steel wires used in the project is equivalent to the circumference of the Earth.

The Sea link starts near Mahim Interchange at the northern end and joins Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan road on the Worli sea face at the southern end. The eight-lane flyover has a capacity of carrying about 1.40 laks cars per day. The speed limit would have to be maintained at 100 km/ hour. Two wheelers and large multi-axle vehicles are not allowed on the sea link.
