Mumbaikars are getting alert for traffic crowding as construction work for Mumbai’s Metro-III started out on May 18. Important road junctions are going to get affected in the coming days. Traffic police officials have planned and put out diversions and curbs which will come into effect from this week till phase-1 work is completed. The long-haul curbs and upcoming monsoon are going to wreak havoc on Mumbai’s already congested roads.
Sanjay Jadhav ; deputy Commissioner of police (western-traffic) said, “ Temporary arrangements have been made and they will come into effect from May 18 till phase-1 is completed for smooth flow of traffic movement.”
The Metro work notification says that construction of Hutatma Chowk station on DN Road; Kalbadevi and Girgaum stations on JSS Road; MIDC station in Andheri; and Worli station on Dr Annie Besant Road will be done in phase-1. Lane-shifting work on Dnyaneshwar Marg in BKC and at international and domestic airports will also be carried out in the first phase.
