Easing travel between Mumbai & Thane, new stretch of Kopri Bridge to open soon for public

The road widening project at Kopri Bridge in Mumbai will throw open an 8-lane stretch for the ease of commuters

The road expansion project of the Kopri Bridge in Mumbai is in its last leg and the stretch is likely to open for the public within a fortnight. The new development will improve connectivity and dissolve traffic by giving people access to an 8-lane road, instead of the present 4. People travelling from Mumbai to Thane city, Northern Maharashtra, Kalyan or Dombivali, will be benefitted from this refurbished route.

Old Kopri Bridge to be rebuilt by February 2022

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has set the final package of the Kopri Bridge expansion on a fast track. Being built at a cost of ₹250 crores, the route under this project is expected to ease commute to Thane city as well as the Thane Railway Station.

Reportedly, the authorities are also considering razing the older portion of the bridge and replacing it with a new one, once the traffic stabilises on the new stretch. This will be initiated to facilitate a streamlined flow of traffic. Besides, a detailed review by the IIT-Bombay further highlighted that the existing bridge is too weak and needs to be pulled down for safety concerns. As per the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Thane Traffic police branch, the old bridge will be rebuilt by February 2022.
