With MTHL off ground, residents question use of 111 crore Nerul jetty

The residents of Navi Mumbai are questioning the fate of the Nerul Jetty, constructed as a water transport option, after the inauguration of the MTHL sea link. The jetty has been lying defunct for over three years, and with the MTHL reducing travel time to Mumbai, its chances of being revived are slim. However, some believe that the jetty still has importance if the issue of inadequate water is resolved. CIDCO had planned to commission the jetty last year but received no response to tender bids.
