Chief Minister Eknath Shinde on Thursday directed the administration to speed up the construction of various road projects in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). Amid rising accidents due to potholes and traffic jams, CM asked the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) to take road repair works on war footing and provide immediate relief to the public.

Shinde asked the MMRDA to take immediate measures to reduce traffic congestion in the region caused due to the construction of a new International Airport, warehouses, logistic centres, container and truck terminals.

CM said that the Vasai-Virar Multimodal Corridor will greatly reduce the traffic congestion in the Bhiwandi-Kalyan-Dombivli-Ulhasnagar area and along with this the development of that area will also get a boost. He asked the MMRDA to complete on fast track roads and bridges in Thane, Thane coastal road.
