Gaining independence from Britain in the twentieth century, Bombay was renamed for an ancient goddess: Mumbai. As India’s largest city, Mumbai has 18.5 million inhabitants making it one of the world’s most populous cities.
Every day in Mumbai, more than 200 trains make over 2,000 trips along 300 kilometres of track, carrying more passengers per kilometre than any railway on earth - Mumbai’s trains alone carry six million people per day. Every
year in Mumbai, 3500 people die on the train tracks—an average of ten per day. Although there are pedestrian overpasses at every station, many passengers chose to save a few minutes by crossing the tracks instead—a dangerous decision. In many parts of Mumbai, walking is faster than driving through congested traffic. To ease this problem without consuming more land, a new eight-lane bridge will extend traffic four kilometres over the sea.
