Mumbai: BMC proposes two new bridges near Mahalaxmi station to ease traffic congestion

To ease traffic congestion around Mahalaxmi station in Mumbai, the BMC has proposed two new bridges to provide direct routes to Worli Naka and Haji Ali Junction.

According to Mumbai Mirror, a one proposed bridge will originate from the right side of Saat Rasta, link up Lower E Moses Road (Dhobi Ghat) with Upper E Moses Road, and run along Mahalaxmi station, leading to Worli Naka. The second bridge will run from Keshavrao Khade Marg near Shirin Talkies and lead to E Moses Road, providing connectivity to Haji Ali junction.

The estimated cost for these road overbridges (ROBs) will be around Rs 100 crore and will approximately take two years after the BMC gets clearance from the railways. BMC’s chief engineer (bridges), Shitala Prasad Kori told the leading daily, “The proposed ROBs will reduce travel time for people who want to go from Saat Rasta to Worli Naka and Haji Ali intersection. Currently, to reach Worli Naka from Saat Rasta, you have to use the Mahalaxmi bridge and then turn right. The ROB will provide a direct path.”
