Ever since the inauguration, #MumbaiGetsAtalSetu has been trending on social media. Here’s a little insight into what happened at the ceremony and how the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link will help Mumbaikars.

#MumbaiGetsAtalSetu – PM Inaugurates India’s Longest Sea Bridge


Devendra Fadnavis, Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra, shared a video on X (formerly Twitter) of PM Modi unveiling the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Sewri-Nhava Sheva Atal Setu. He added the now trending hashtag to his post – #MumbaiGetsAtalSetu and shared several other posts welcoming the PM and him inspecting the bridge.


Besides Fadnavis, PM Modi was accompanied by Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde and Governor of Maharashtra, Ramesh Bias at the inauguration ceremony in Mumbai today.

Mumbai Trans Harbour Link – Making Travel Faster & Better For Mumbai

Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) has been the talk of the town for being an economical and faster travel route connecting Mumbai to Navi Mumbai. This 21.8-kilometre bridge is India’s longest sea bridge and will be open for public use from Saturday. MTHL is believed to shorten the travel time between the two places to just 20 minutes!


The main aim of this bridge was to better the current connectivity scenario in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. This region mainly includes districts like Mumbai, Thane, Palghar, and Raigad. Once opened, this bridge will also decongest the heavy traffic at Vashi Bridge.


The Mumbai Metropolitan Development Authority is expecting more than 70,000 vehicles to cross the bridge daily. It will also help save about 10 million litres of fuel annually once it becomes fully functional.


So, what’s your first destination to travel to via the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link, now that it is finally open?
