Relief from the traffic congestion in Thane
A few days ago, the MSRDC had sent a letter to the Thane Traffic Police. It said that it is dangerous to continue heavy traffic on this bridge. Therefore, the traffic of heavy vehicles was also diverted to the Eastern Expressway. The repair work of this bridge has been completed last Sunday evening. So Thane Traffic Police has now decided to continue as before instead of one way. With the completion of Saket Bridge, there is a possibility of getting relief from the traffic congestion in Thane city.
