This 2.9 km stretch from Veermata Jijabai Bhosale Marg to Sion-Panvel highway has brought a much-needed respite for Mumbaikars.
Mumbai's road landscape has accommodated yet another highway that is easing traffic woes in the city while reducing the travel time simultaneously. This 2.9 km, 6-lane highway links Veermata Jijabai Bhosale Marg to Sion-Panvel highway and has reduced the 30 minutes journey from Ghatkopar and Mankhurd to just over 3 minutes.
As per reports, the initial deadline of this project was marked in January 2019, which was extended due to a change in design. The highway now has a connecting pass till the Deonar dumping ground as well.
Say goodbye to traffic, Mumbaikars!
On Sunday, the Chief Minister of Maharashtra inaugurated a new road stretch in Mumbai, which is expected to reduce the traffic load in the metropolis. All vehicles coming from Eastern Express Highway and Santacruz-Chembur Link Road can use the new pass to cut down their travel time.
Ghatkopar-Mankhurd flyover: a much-needed respite for locals
Built at a cost of ₹580 crores, the flyover will ease traffic woes and boost connectivity along the Ghatkopar-Mankhurd Link Road, which connects Mumbai to Navi Mumbai, Lonavala and Pune. The stretch has been gladly welcomed by the locals who had been deliberating over a safe pedestrian pass here. The flyover will also regulate the heavy traffic congestions in areas near Deonar abattoir and Shivaji Nagar, a big step forward for civic comfort.
The project has seen the light of the day after a three-year delay, however, it is yet to be named. Initially, the title, 'Shivaji Maharaj' was cleared for it at a civic works committee meeting on July 29. As per reports, the BMC's general body will soon finalise and announce a name for the pass.
