Shinde also conducted a review of the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link bridge during the visit. He expressed optimism about the rapid development after the opening of the 22 km long 'Atal Bihari Vajpayee Sewari Nhava Shevha Atal Setu'. The new bridge is expected to reduce a two-hour commute to just twenty minutes, providing relief from traffic congestion for Mumbaikars and saving both fuel and time.

Highlighting the broader impact, Shinde mentioned that the new bridge will connect Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, and Raigad district, paving the way for significant development projects in the region. He also emphasized the eco-friendly nature of the project, noting an increase in the number of flamingos in the vicinity of the bridge.
