At a length of 21.8km, the bridge will feature a six-lane highway and two emergency exits, providing full time employment for 50 bridge experts.

“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 construction of the bridge, set to begin later this year, will cost approximately $2.2bn, with completion expected for the end of 2022.

Ramboll expects that once the bridge is operational it will cater to 62,000 car units daily which is later expected to increase to 200,000 should Navi Mumbai International Airport become operational.
