To further ease the traffic snarls in the megapolis, Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) plans to build two new bridges besides remodelling the existing bridge that will complement its Santacruz-Chembur east-west link road.

The Authority has invited private agencies for preparing detailed project report.

"The bridges will come up at University Junction, Bandra- Kurla Junction and near Mithi River and complement the Santacruz-Chembur link road, which is expected to be completed by the year-end," MMRDA said in a statement.

According to MMRDA, the two new bridges would connect Bandra-Kurla Link Road to CST Junction and Hans Burga Marg to CST Marg, respectively, while the existing 40-meter long and 30-meter wide CST Bridge would be remodelled to a length of 100 meters and width of 45 meters.
