Monsoon Slows Down Speed Of Cars On Mumbai’s Bandra-Worli Sea Link

With Monsoon having fully entered the financial city of Mumbai, the mist from the heavy downpour caused low visibility on the Bandra-Worli Sea Link.

The monsoon, on June 28, made the cars on the iconic Sea Link bridge crawl.

The visibility on the bridge was so low that the cars could not touch even 20 km/hour mark.


The 5-km-long Sea Link is a majestic eight-lane bridge which offers a super-fast connection between the western suburb of Bandra to Worli in Central Mumbai.

On an average day, the speed limit on the bridge is around 50 km/hr.

What is more, the torrential rainfall has made commuting within the city a nightmare for its residents with many delays and cancellations of Mumbai locals and the roads itself being turned into river.


Though Mumbai is know for its torrential rains, the spell of the past few days has already surpassed what the city receives in the entire month of June.


What is more, according to the Met department, heavy showers will continue in Mumbai for at least another week.
