The Versova-Branda Sea Link of Mumbai, also called VBSL, will be a motorway with 4 lanes in each direction. It is an ambitious project that will allow the Group to mediate the experience acquired with the building of the Western High Speed Diameter (WHSD) in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The EPC contract covers the work to improve the viability in Mumbai. The new infrastructure, commissioned by the Indian public company Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC), will require the construction of complex works at sea and stretch for a length of approx. 17.7 kms (of which over 16 km of viaducts), linking the neighborhoods of Bandra, Otter, Juhu and Versova.

It will be situated between 900 and 1,800 meters from the coast of the city. In addition, it will also include the construction of a cable-stayed bridge of 300 m (main span: 150 m) and 3 bridges of variable section, with a main span of 100 m, to allow navigation in the area. Maintenance activities for 2 years are also planned.
