WEHThe Mumbai Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (MMRDA) announced that construction of the ‘missing link’ between Eastern Express Highway and Western Express Highway is expected to be construted by this year end.

Once completed, the road will cut short the commuters’ travel time to five minutes from the present 40 minutes. MMRDA revealed this in response to an RTI query filed by activist Anil Galgali.

Executive engineer of MMRDA, P G Bhangare, said the work of constructing steel viaduct near Jagruti Nagar is expected to be completed by December 2015. “This missing link is being built at a cost of Rs 88 crore and when it gets ready, commuters would be able to drive from Asalpha to Shreyas Junction in just five minutes,” he said.

According to Galgali, work order for this 2.9 km road had been released way back in May 2008.
