    Mumbai: MMRDA said it will invite request for qualification for the Rs 10,000-crore Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link (MTHL), connecting Sevri in the north-eastern part of the island city with Nhava Sheva (JNPT port area) across creek, by November.

    "We will float bids for the project next year. The project will be implemented on a public-private-partnership model," Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) Commissioner Rahul Asthana told reporters.

    The state government recently handed over the mandate of project to MMRDA. Earlier it was to be implemented by the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC).

    "Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, at a review meetin, made it clear that MTHL is a flagship project and should be recognised as an iconic structure after construction. He has asked us to follow the timeline," he said.

    "We will start the bidding process from this year itself and will invite requests for qualification (RFQ) by November-end. Once the work on the project commences, we expect it to be completed by 2017," Asthana said.

    During the meeting, Chavan also approved provisioning of Rs 1,113 crore for road widening and flyovers in the metropolitan region.

    "We have made a provision of around Rs 1,113 crore for road widening and flyovers in areas outside Mumbai. The effort is to transform these areas into growth centres," he said.
