Atal Setu |

Mumbai: The Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link (MTHL), also known as the Atal Setu will be closed for around 14 hours starting from Saturday night till Sunday afternoon. The reason behind the closure is the L&T Sea Bridge Marathon 2024 which is set to be held on the majestic sealink on Sunday morning.

The marathon organised by Larsen and Toubro, in collaboration with MMRDA will be disrupting traffic on the Atal Setu Shivdi-Nhava Sheva Sea Link. Hence, authorities have decided that the sea bridge will be closed from 11:00 PM on February 17th until 1:00 PM on February 18th for commute. All types of vehicles will be barred from accessing the sea link. The Mumbai Police Traffic Department has issued notifications regarding this.

Details On Alternate Routes

During the marathon, scheduled from 4:00 AM to 12:00 PM on February 18th, no traffic disruptions should occur. Therefore, to ensure smooth flow, vehicle entry will be prohibited on the sea link from 11:00 PM on February 17th until 1:00 PM on February 18th. Vehicles travelling from Uran to Atal Setu will have designated routes via Gavhan Phata, Uran Phata, and Vashi for desired destinations.

Vehicles travelling from Pune to Mumbai will be directed through the faster route via the Yashwantrao Chavan Expressway (Mumbai-Pune Expressway) and will have to reach desired destinations further using the Belapur and Vashi routes.

Light vehicles commuting from JNPT to Mumbai will be redirected via Gavhan Phata and Vashi Creek Bridge routes to reach their destinations in Mumbai.

Police vehicles, fire brigade units, ambulances, and other essential service vehicles will be exempt from these traffic control notifications, as well as vehicles involved in the marathon.
