Maharashtra Maritime Board has floated tenders for the construction of Eight passenger jetties across Mumbai. The project will cost 13 million US dollars and will be shared by the Centre and the state governments. The project is part of the Centre’s Sagar Mala initiative, under the Union Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways.

Five years after the development of an inland waterway connecting Mira-Bhayandar to Dombivali was first approved, the Maharashtra Maritime Board (MMB) has floated tenders for the construction of eight passenger jetties spread across Bhayandar, Kolshet (Thane), Kalher (Bhiwandi) and Dombivali. The total cost of the project will be ₹96 crore and will be shared by the Centre and the state governments.

The project is part of the Centre’s Sagar Mala initiative, under the Union Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways. The civil works are expected to be completed within a year and a half of the tenders being awarded to suitable contractors, while the ferry services on this route – which includes the Vasai Creek and Ulhas River – may commence at the end of 2025, according to a senior MMB official.
