A causeway is a road or a railway on an elevation, generally on a water body. The Mahim causeway is the term used as it is a link between Mahim and Bandra over the Mahim Bay !

When first used, the word appeared in a form such as causey way making clear its derivation from the earlier form causey. This word seems to have come from the same source by two different routes
