L&T Construction’s Transportation Infrastructure business unit has been awarded the Dahisar-Bhayander Bridge project in Mumbai by the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM). The project involves the construction of a 4.5-km-long bridge connecting Dahisar and Bhayander, which would substantially reduce the travel time of over 45 minutes between the two locations.

The bridge will feature two distinct carriageways, along with a multi-level interchange at both Dahisar and Bhayander, for smooth entry and exit. Additionally, the project will include two large navigational spans spanning across the creek. In parallel, L&T is engaged in the execution of two packages for the Mumbai Coastal Road projects, also commissioned by the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM).
