Bandra Worli Sea Link
The Bandra Worli Sea Link (BWSL) Project has been one of the most highly recommended links by transport studies conducted for the metropolitan region over the last thirty years. Current Scenario: Mahim Causeway, the North-South connector between the western suburbs and the island city of Mumbai is gets increasingly bottleneck prone. With 1,20,000 vehicles crossing the causeway daily, it takes nearly an hour to travel the 8 km from Mahim to Worli. Bandra Worli Sea Link is first phase of Western Freeway Sea Link (Bandra to Nariman Point) the second phase being Worli - Nariman Point. The BWSL (a part of the Western Freeway) will increase the route options of passengers traveling from the island city to the western suburbs and vice-versa and thereby decongest the overstrained Mahim Causeway and western corridor. Entrepreneur Cost Type of Project Concession Period Layout : : : : : MSRDC Rs. 1306 Crore Build Operate Transfer (BOT) 30 years This 6 km link commences from the Mahim interchange (i.e. intersection of the Western Express Highway and S. V. Road at Bandra) and ends at Love Grove Junction in Worli.

Benefits
l

Estimated savings in Vehicle Operating Costs (VOC): Rs. 100 Crores per annum Considerable savings in travel time (20 to 30 minutes) due to increased speed and reduced delays (23 signals avoided) Stress free driving Reduced accidents Reduction in traffic on existing roads because of traffic diversion to the Sea Link Reduction in Carbon Monoxide and Nitrogen Oxide Levels in Mahim, Dadar, Prabhadevi and Worli along existing roads Reduced noise pollution in Mahim, Dadar, Prabhadevi and Worli along existing roads

Diesel generators and auto mains failure panels to cater as emergency backups. Adequate lighting levels and energy saving luminaries. Lightening protection at bridge tower and control room. Duplicate cables will ensure reliability and availability of equipment. Facade lighting for bridge tower and special lighting in landscaped area.

PART 1: Approach Bridges

No adverse effect on fisheries, marine life and livelihood of fisherman Landscaping along the approaches and waterfront promenade will enhance the environment and add green spots to the city Mumbai gets a new landmark

l l

The bridge comprises typical units of five continuous spans of 50 m each. There are three such units. The ends of each unit have expansion joints. Superstructure and substructure are designed in accordance with IRC & AASHTO codes. Sub-structure consists of 1.5 m, diameter drilled piles with pile caps and some of the piers near Worli end will be directly socketed into the rock. Longitudinal and lateral, bridge bearing supports (disc type) at various locations will limit displacement. Superstructure will be pre-cast, post-tensioned, fish belly shaped, twin segmented concrete box girder sections., A typical precast segment is 18m wide, 3m deep and 3m long weighing about 100t. Segments will be epoxied together with nominal pre-stressing Facility for emergency cross over at spans P4 - P5 Provision for an access ramp connection to Bandstand near Searock Hotel Bandra & Worli apporach bridges are structurally identical.

Main Bridge (PackageIV)
Work in Progress Details Bridge Structure
Bridge consists of twin continuous concrete box girder bridges for traffic in each direction. The Bridge (except the cable-stayed portion) is supported on piers typically spaced at 50 meters. Each section is meant for four lanes of traffic, with anti-crash barriers and service sidewalks on one side.

Main span:150 m (Single central main span of 150 m with towers on either side of 56 m height) The superstructure comprises of twin pre-cast concrete box girders with a fish belly cross sectional shape, identical to the approaches. cross sectional shape, identical to the approaches. Boxes are deepened and widened at the edges in order to accommodate cable anchorage. A typical pre-cast segment is 22 meters wide, 3m deep, 2.5m long and weighs about 120t. Every alternate segment has cables attached to it.. The main tower foundation at Bandra comprises 2m drilled shafts, approximately 25 meter in length. The 6 meters deep, pile cap is constructed on a tremie seal within a Cofferdam.
