Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on January 12 inaugurated Atal Setu, the longest sea bridge in the country connecting Mumbai and its satellite township Navi Mumbai, and sounded the bugle for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, saying the fulfilment of this project was his guarantee.

The PM, who was on a day-long visit to Maharashtra, inaugurated the Rs 17,840 crore Atal Bihari Vajpayee Sewri-Nhava Sheva Atal Setu, the longest bridge as well as the longest sea bridge in the country connecting south Mumbai with Nhava-Sheva in Navi Mumbai. The six-lane trans-harbour bridge is 21.8 km long with a 16.5 km long sea-link.

The foundation stone of the bridge had been laid by prime minister Modi in December 2016.

From the venue, Modi also inaugurated new suburban railway station Digha Gaon on Thane-Vashi/Panvel trans-harbour line and 6th line between Khar Road and Goregaon railway stations in Mumbai.
