The Mumbai coastal road project Rs 12,700-crore will change the face of Mumbai.
The Mumbai Coastal Road Project, a large-scale plan Rs 12,700 crores under the umbrella of the Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), is now 40% complete.
As a result of 40% completion, Chahal said the tunnel under Malabar Hill would be complete to roughly 1.2 km. Currently, only 900 meters of tunnel work remain, he added. As of January 2021, work on the tunnel has begun. According to the official, this is India’s first undersea tunnel, and its diameter is 40 feet. This section will connect Marine lines to Malabar Hill.
Further, the Coastal Road will be an eight-lane highway that will link Marine Lines in the south with Kandivali in the north along Mumbai’s western coastline. Approximately 12,700 crores are expected to be spent on the project.
According to the plans, 130,000 cars will use the Coastal Road every day, reducing travel time between South Mumbai and the Western Suburbs by half. This road will also feature Mumbai’s first Bus Rapid Transit system, which will increase public transportation. Additionally, 70 hectares of green space will feature gardens, amphitheaters, cycling trails, paths, playgrounds for children, and a butterfly garden. Further, the first phase of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link is expected to be completed by mid-2023 according to BMC chief IS Chahal.
MCGM/BMC is building 10.58 km of Marine Drive-Bandra Worli Sea Link as part of phase 1 of construction. This project features an 8 lane reclaimed seafront road, bridges on stilts under Malabar Hills, two tunnels under Malabar Hills, new green spaces, sea walls, and multiple interchanges for traffic dispersal. While on the other side as part of Phase 2, Bandra-Versova Sea Link is constructed with Connectors to Bandra Carter Road and Juhu Koliwada.
As a result, Mumbai is expected to see a greater facelift next year, transforming the city’s face. Despite that, it will ease traffic congestion in Mumbai since it is a densely populated city. Thus, we expect that the fuel consumption will decrease by 35% once it has been put into use.
