Atal Setu news: You will not be allowed on Mumbai Trans Harbour Link if you are on… | Mint – Mint

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the much-awaited Atal Setu, the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) that is built at a cost of about 17,840 crore. Atal Setu is the longest bridge in India and also the longest sea bridge in the country.
The bridge is about 21.8 km long six-lane bridge having about 16.5 km length over sea and about 5.5 km on the land. It will also reduce the travel time from Mumbai to Pune, Goa, and South India.
The toll for the Sewri-Shivaji Nagar (Ulwe) stretch has been fixed at 200 and 50 for the 2.5 km Shivai Nagar-Gavhan stretch. The toll for a return trip will be 1.5 times the one-way charge.
The Atal Setu or MTHL bridge will be open for commuters on Saturday morning. In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Mumbai traffic police shared a list of vehicles not allowed on the bridge.
This includes motorcycles, mopes, 3-wheeler tempo, auto-rickshaws, tractors, tractors with unladen trolleys, animal-drawn vehicles, and slow-moving vehicles.
PM Modi laid the foundation stone of the bridge in December 2016. The inauguration ceremony of Mumbai’s MTHL bridge will take place at around 3:30 pm today. PM Modi will travel on India’s longest sea bridge from INS Shikra in Colaba to Navi Mumbai near an upcoming airport site.
