Causeways were among the earliest infrastructural projects that connected the Town and Island of Bombay to its neighbouring islands.
Colaba Causeway, constructed in 1838, was among the last of these projects, joining the southermost islands of Colaba and the Old Woman’s Island to that of Bombay.

Infrastructure: Tardeo Road

The suburb of Tardeo was developed from the 1850s onwards to host the industries, establishments and citizens that were considered unsuitable for accommodating in the city centre of the Fort or the residential stronghold of Byculla. Mills, gas companies, widows, pensioners and a few European and Indian householders like the Adenwallas and Jessawallas gathered in Tardeo and made good neighbours.
