Share post:


Mumbai: The transport department of Maharashtra government has decided to introduce new safety upgrades on the iconic Bandra Worli Sea Link bridge, an official said on Wednesday.

Following the deadly double accident earlier this month on the sea link, the question of safety was on the anvil.

New incident management system, a software, will be put into place that will send out alerts to multiple agencies as well as to the vehicular traffic driving on the sea link within half a minute of any incident occurring.

“This system will alert the toll operators, quick response team, put up messages on visual digital signposts, traffic authorities, among others,” the official who was part of the meeting to enhance safety on the sea link, said.
