The Airoli Bridge is a bridge in the Mumbai metropolitan area of India. It was constructed to establish a direct road link between Mumbai and Navi Mumbai.[1]

Structure[edit]

Constructed by Afcons Infrastructure Ltd and project executed by Subodh V. Kamat, the 1.03 km bridge marked the development of Airoli & Thane- Belapur belt. The MSRDC collects toll on the bridge.[2]

Geographical significance[edit]

A road link connecting Thane–Belapur road and Eastern Express Highway has been established by this bridge. This bridge forms a junction on Thane - Belapur road at Airoli and meets the intersection of Eastern Express Highway and Goregoan - Mulund link road in Mumbai. This bridge is the second bridge connecting Mumbai to Navi Mumbai after the Vashi Bridge connecting the township of Vashi to Mankhurd.
