The Western Coastal Freeway is a 29.3 kilometre long system of in-shore and undersea tunnels, bridges, viaducts, reclaimed roads, interchanges, BRT, public spaces/promenades that will connect the southern end of the island city at Marine Drive to the northwestern suburb of Kandivali, in the city of Bombay/Mumbai. Construction starts in October this year.

I hope they will refine such issues in the actual project. But India has some weird road layouts. For example the new Agra - Lucknow Expressway has three lanes in each direction, but at some interchanges it briefly widens out to as much as six lanes in one direction before merging back to three lanes.

I like how they blended drone footage with a render of the new road and surroundings. They really spent some money and effort in getting this video produced. It captures the scenery and skyline of Mumbai and combines it with the proposed project.

It certainly looks like it; I'd wait for the finer details to be made public, though.
