The extent of the first phase of this ambitious 29-km project is 9.98-km, consisting of three packages with roads, bridges, interchanges, tunnels, reclamation and seawalls forming the key components.
The Hindustan Construction Company and Hyundai Development Corporation joint venture awarded us the design of the reclamation and seawall marine elements for the first phase of this prestigious project, further cementing our reputation as leaders in the Coastal Infrastructure sector.
Our work includes the design of essential rubble-mound seawall and reclamation fill and the subsequent update of the plan to incorporate the results of physical model testing. In addition, we’ll be coordinating our marine works with other critical components of the Coastal Road Project, such as roads, interchanges and utilities and providing design solutions for ease of construction on-site without compromising structural integrity.
A project of this magnitude and importance is certainly not without its challenges. Still, despite the tasks ahead, the MCRP is set to provide immeasurable benefits to the city. Upon completion in mid-2022, it will handle estimated130,000 vehicles a day and is expected to boost the economy by reducing travel times for busy commuters between South Mumbai and the Western suburbs from over 2 hours to just 40 minutes.
