Technology Used In Atal Setu ‘India’s Longest Sea Bridge’

Atal Setu Mumbai Bridge
  • Regarding the bridge’s new features, MMRDA Metropolitan Commissioner Dr. Sanjay Mukherjee stated that the most sophisticated traffic management system has been installed, and it can recognize fog, poor vision, and cars traveling faster than the posted speed restrictions.
  • Furthermore, Atal Setu’s lighting system won’t harm the aquatic ecosystem. It was built using several technologies that weren’t before employed in India.
  • Experts are calling the bridge an “engineering marvel.”
  • The new bridge has various cutting-edge features and the latest technologies. Jat has orthotropic steel decking that contributes to its enormous spans.
  • In the Atal Setu, river circulation rings have been employed to reduce noise and vibrations to protect marine life.
  • The steel utilized for the building of the bridge is 17 times greater than that of the Eiffel Tower, and the structural steel used is four times that of the Howrah Bridge. Additionally, six times as much concrete was needed to build this significant sea link as was utilized to build the Statue of Liberty (in the US).
  • The bridge is a 21.8 km long strip with six lanes, each measuring roughly 16.5 km over the water and 5.5 km on land.
  • The newly opened bridge would shorten the journey time from almost 2 hours to 15 to 20 minutes, covering the 15 kilometers between Panvel in the Raigad district and Sewri in south-central Mumbai.
