The Mumbai Coastal Road project is one of the most ambitious project taken up by the Greater Mumbai Municipal Corporation.
The construction of this 10.58 km long road starting from the Princess Street flyover to the South end of Bandra Worli Sea Link has been underway for sometime.
It consists of 4 plus 4 Lane embankment roads, elevated roads, bridges and tunnels. The construction works began in October 2018 and the target is set for November 2023.
This project is aimed at reducing travel time by road and also resolving the present traffic congestion in the region. Alongside, it is expected to create additional green belts by bringing about improvements in public transportation through a dedicated bus route.
