Bridging the Gap

A fantastic shot of the Bandra-Worli sea link project in Mumbai, India.

Here's a snippet taken from

The Bandra Worli Sea Link Project has been one of the most highly recommended project of all the transport studies done for the metropolitan region during the last forty years. At present, Mahim causeway is the only link connecting western suburbs to island city of Mumbai. The existing north south western corridor is highly congested and during the peak hours results in a bottleneck at Mahim Causeway. Vehicular traffic admeasuring about 1,20,000 PCU travels on the Mahim causeway everyday and during peak hours and it takes about forty minutes to travel from Mahim causeway to Worli, a distance of about 8 km.

Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, we watch as the eastern span of the Bay Bridge continues to be built.
