  • MMRDA awarded contracts for the project in November 2017; construction began in April 2018 and is scheduled to complete within four-and-a-half years. MMRDA estimates that 70,000 vehicles will use the bridge daily.
    • Larsen and Toubro, IHI Corporation, Daewoo E&C and Tata Projects are the contractors.
  • It will help decongest Mumbai and will also boost the real estate market of Navi Mumbai. It will reduce the commuting distance from Churchgate to Navi Mumbai from 40 minutes to 20 minutes.

    • GVK-led MIAL, Zaha Hadid Architects and Central Water, Louis Berger and Power Research Station (CWPRS) got the contract for the same.
  • The project is likely to be operational by 2023. The first phase will handle 20 million passengers p.a. It will handle more than 90 million passengers p.a.
  • The project required the relocation of 2,786 households located across 10 villages—Chinchpada, Kopar, Kolhi, Ulwe, Upper Owale, Waghivalivada, Vaghivali, Ganeshpuri, Targhar, and Kombadbhuje.
  • Facilities at the airport will include cargo terminal buildings, two parallel runways for independent operations, taxiways, an apron area, cargo complex, aircraft maintenance site and long-term aircraft parking, as well as additional infrastructural facilities such as car parking, a power supply system and water treatment plant.

    • It includes 24 industrial regions, eight smart cities, two international airports, five power projects, two mass rapid transit systems, and two logistical hubs.
  • The eight investment regions proposed to be developed in Phase I of DMIC are Dadri-Noida-Ghaziabad (in UP), Manesar-Bawal (in Haryana), Khushkhera-Bhiwadi-Neemrana and Jodhpur-Pali-Marwar (in Rajasthan), Pithampur-Dhar-Mhow (in MP), Ahmedabad-Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR) in Gujarat, the Shendra-Bidkin Industrial Park, and Dighi Port Industrial Area in Maharashtra.
