The Mumbai Trans Harbor Link (MTHL) or Atal Setu Bridge was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This bridge will put India on the world map for its technological advancement. The new sea bridge is one of the longest in the world. The bridge was built in a record five years and its completion is expected to revolutionize connectivity and transport in the region..
The bridge will receive the latest technology in terms of earthquake resistance, marine life protection, noise reduction techniques and more. Discover the most exciting aspects of the new Atal Setu Bridge.
Key Technical Highlights of Atal Setu:
1. Earthquake-Resistant Structure: The bridge incorporates earthquake-resistant technology that enables it to withstand various earthquakes up to 6.5 on the Richter scale.
2. Orthotropic Steel Deck: This feature, a first in India, gives the bridge a wide opening, improving its structural integrity.
3. Reverse Circulation Pumps: This technology is used to reduce noise and vibration and plays an important role in protecting nearby marine life.
4. Noise reduction measures: the bridge includes noise attenuators and sound barriers to minimize the acoustic impact.
5. Ecological lighting: The lighting system of the bridge is designed without disturbing the aquatic environment.
6. No toll queues: MTHL will have an open toll system which will solve long toll queues. Advanced scanners can scan the vehicle and collect the toll electronically, reducing waiting time to zero.
7. Screens: The bridge also has screens that are placed at regular intervals to provide drivers with important information in real time. They receive a message about a traffic jam or an accident.
