A new 21.8 km bridge to connect Mumbai and Navi stimulating economic growth in India.
Ramboll will supply the detailed design services and technical support during construction of India’s longest sea bridge.
The Mumbai Trans Harbour Link, joining Mumbai with the satellite city of Navi Mumbai, will be a six-lane highway with two emergency exit lanes and a length of 21.8 kilometres. The new bridge will play a crucial role in future growth in India, providing access to new jobs and housing for hundreds of thousands of people in the fast-growing Navi Mumbai.
Ramboll is acting as an advisor for the Indian and South Korean joint venture Tata Projects-Daewoo. The project will provide full-time employment for 50 Ramboll bridge experts in India, the UK and Denmark during the design and construction phase, and include geotechnical studies, foundation design, column and superstructure as well as the supervision of the building site.
“We are incredibly pleased to be awarded this prestigious project,” says Lars Thorbek, Global Division Director for Major Crossings at Ramboll. “It is in line with Ramboll’s new strategy to extend our activities with major crossings, bridges and tunnels globally and will help strengthen our position as a significant international player in bridge design.”
The total price for the project is estimated to be USD 2.2 billion. Construction will begin in the middle of 2018 with completion by the end of 2022. It is estimated that in the first year of operation the bridge will cater to 62,000 passenger car units daily which would increase to around 200,000 in the 30 years of operation assuming the Navi Mumbai International Airport will have become operational.
