Notably, taking into consideration the security of Bandra-Worli Sea Link, the police had decided to patrol the Sea link 24x7 in 2019. The Sea Link has redefined Mumbai with millions of vehicles using the route daily. Even after spending thousands of crores, the security of the sea link wasn’t given the required attention. After 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, it was decided to further strengthen the security of the Sea Link, though no specific action was taken.  

It is planning to plug the gaps between the pillars of the Bandra-Worli sea link with safety nets with just one opening for fishermen boats to pass through.
