The Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL), also recognized as the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Sewri-Nhava Sheva Atal Setu, has been officially opened to the public following its inauguration by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on January 12, 2024.
Establishing a connection between Sewri and Nhava Sheva, the Atal Setu plays a crucial role in minimizing travel distance and time between Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. It holds strategic importance as a vital link for the forthcoming Navi Mumbai International Airport and the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT).
Spanning a total length of 21.8 km, with an impressive 16.5 km over water, the Atal Setu has now secured its position as the longest sea bridge in the country.
Equipped with a cutting-edge open-road tolling system, utilizing cameras and scanners to replace traditional toll booths, the bridge aims to enhance efficiency. For cars, toll charges have been set at Rs 250 for a one-way trip and Rs 375 for a return journey.
