Mumbai has been undergoing major renovations lately, be it the streets or the Mumbai airport runway. Joining the league of new infrastructures, is the much-awaited BKC-Chunabhatti connector.

This unveiled connector has sparked promises of a better tomorrow because traffic has always been a major drawback for the city. The traffic gets especially irksome around the BKC area, during peak hours. For effective traffic control, the BKC-Chunabhatti connector will add heaps to the betterment of the daily commuters.

What's the update?

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has considered a traffic dispersal scheme for the newly-built Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC)-Chunabhatti-Eastern Express Highway (EEH) connector.

The oncoming traffic from the Santacruz-Chembur Link Road and Sion-Dharavi Link Road to BKC will be bifurcated once the connector is unveiled for the public, on the 9th of November.

For seamless regulation of traffic headed from the BKC connector, the National Stock Exchange junction on the Bandra-Kurla Link Road has been unbarred and new signals have been installed here. This will permit traffic movement towards the Kalanagar junction by accommodating a left turn towards the Bandra Government Colony.

This flyover has been built at an expenditure of around ₹200 crores and is expected to decongest the main entry point from EEH, Dharavi Junction.

How will it help the traffic?

According to reports by The Hindu, an official of MMRDA stated, “For effective dispersal of traffic, lane marking, construction of central median, islands, and installation of signages in and around BKC and signals at certain locations are being installed.”

Another positive draw out of this is that motorists will be permitted to use this four-lane road and they’ll be able to reach BKC or the Eastern Express Highway (EEH) within a shorter time period.

Knock Knock

With the new Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC)-Chunabhatti-Eastern Express Highway (EEH) connector Mumbaikars will now be able to cap 30 minutes out of the usual travel time. It is least to say that we're pretty excited about this 1.6 kilometres long and 17-metre wide connector, which is bound to solve many of our traffic woes.
