Will the booming infrastructure in Mumbai make it a more livable city?

Mumbai, our financial capital hub, is finally seeing a fresh infrastructural development. The city has just witnessed the opening of the seaside route following a flurry of construction activities. Constructed at an expense of Rs 13,000 crore, the 11-kilometre, partially subterranean waterway links the island city’s southernmost point to Worli’s midtown, and from there to the suburban area of Bandra through the sea link. This makes it possible for vehicles to avoid the traffic jams during rush hour.

The Adani Group was given the task of developing the Dharavi slum and now there is progress. If approved, the 640-acre slum expansion will house approximately 60,000 households in high-rise residential complexes and serve as the city’s new Manhattan. The largest sea bridge in India, the 22-kilometre Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL), also known as “Atal Setu,” has been put into service and a number of flyoMTHLvers are expected to improve living in the metropolis.
