Mumbai saw bumper-to-bumper traffic after offices reopened after almost three months amid the Maharashtra government’s third phase of Mission Begin Again campaign. Thousands of vehicles were witnessed on Mumbai's Western Expressway as relaxed lockdown norms were implemented across the state.
Mumbai is known as a city that never sleeps, but traffic snarls, illegally parked cars, and pothole-ridden roads slows down the city. A study report by IDFC Institute revealed that people travelling in the financial capital of India spend around 10 to 15 days stuck in traffic.
The study report suggests that people living in Mumbai waste 55% of their commuting time stuck in traffic, with the worsening during monsoon season.
