Driving in the City....
Every person you meet in Mumbai is talking about this bridge which will be the future famous landmark of Mumbai. The Bandra-Worli sea link looks very attractive with its long 500 meters cables supporting the bridge….an intelligent bridge with state-of-the-art-system for traffic monitoring, surveillance, information and guidance, instrumentation, emergency support, etc.
Hopefully it will ease the traffic, which at present is a real nightmare, with more than 40 signals on its route, it takes us more that thirty five minutes to reach Worli from Bandra. With this bridge, we can reach Worli in just seven minutes! (That is if there is no traffic congestion at all)
31st May is the day, when people might go for a drive…….through this 8-lane bridge, which has a modern toll plaza of 16 lanes with automated toll collection system.
I am waiting too….*wink, wink*
The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),
.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” .....as it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
