JVLR extension flyover is at the Jogeshwari end of JVLR. The RoB will connect eastern and western part of Jogeshwari and extend JVLR to the western part of Jogeshwari.

Crucial changes in Rs 6K crore coastal road plan

Sharad Vyas, TNN | Dec 23, 2011, 04.08AM IST

MUMBAI: Nearly six months after it was formed amid widespread fears of damage to the city's fragile ecology, the technical committee appointed by the state government to look into the feasibility of building coastal roads in Mumbai has completed its report.

The 12-member panel headed by municipal commissioner Subodh Kumar has zeroed in on an alignment for the 29-km stretch_which will begin at the Marine Drive Gymkhana and end at the L&T unit in Madh_in the process creating 57.5 hectares of open spaces as a bonus.

"The report will be submitted to the state urban development department for final approval and necessary permission required from the environment ministry," Kumar told TOI.

The project, officials said, could be completed in three years if permission comes on time and will cost the state exchequer about Rs 6,000 crore. To be constructed part on stilts, part on bridges, tunnels, existing roads and new roads on reclaimed land, it will create on most patches an extension of at least 100 m from the sea line.

Of the total 29-km, about 7 km will be constructed by building new roads or widening the existing roads on reclaimed land. Another 10 km will come up on stilts to protect mangrove areas, 6.4 km will be constructed in the from of a tunnel, 3.4 km in widening of roads, 1.2 km in bridges and a kilometer of elevated road on existing stretches.

Committee members said wherever possible they have made crucial changes on the alignment to protect old fishing villages of Bandra and Khar, and mangroves in Juhu, Andheri and Malad. "We will also provide two to three alternatives to the environment ministry in terms of how much could be taken on stilts eventually. Out of these options, they could take a suitable call," a committee member said.

The 29-km stretch is part of an ambitious 320-km ring road, estimated to cost Rs 34,000 crore, to be constructed around Mumbai. The extension for the eastern front and other viable components will be pursued in later phases. "As of now we have ended the road at Madh. From there, a stilted road will be constructed over the mangrove land to leave an option open for future extensions," a member said.

The project has been criticized by the Koli community, the original inhabitants of Mumbai, and some experts who feel it is a violation of a 2011 CRZ notification that permits roads on stilts and not coastal roads by way of reclaiming land. The committee comprises representatives from the Union ministry of environment and forests, National Institute of Oceanography, Indian Institute of Technology (Bombay), J J School of Architecture, Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority's ( MMRDA) transport division as well as architects Chandrashekhar Prabhu, Hafeez Contractor and P K Das.

Mumbai, where the streets have many names

Source: http://www.mumbaimirror.com/article/...any-names.html

Quote:
With civic elections approaching, more than 100 roads and chowks in the city are set to be renamed. At a general body meeting of the BMC on Friday, over 50 proposals by corporators for giving new identities to our thoroughfares and junctions were cleared.

The move came just a fortnight after the BMC gave its nod to 53 such requests for changing names. So, the junction between Rajashri Shahau Maharaj Road and Teli Galli in Andheri East will be soon known as Trikamji Andarji Chatwani Chowk. The road leading to Andheri-Mograpada police outpost and Mograpada basti will be called Behram Khan Path.

Giving new names to roads and chowks is a popular tactic among local politicians and corporators, desperate to please voters in their areas ahead of elections. Usually, they select names of past and present figures who are well-known in the local community.

“This connects us with them,” said a Sena corporator from western suburbs. He added that voters got a sense of representation when roads and places were named after someone from their community.

There is still some time for the BMC polls, but corporators have showed an urgency to get name-change proposals cleared. This is mainly because they want to complete the inauguration functions that follow the formal nod before the code of conduct becomes effective.

“By next week, a number of roads and chowks will be renamed. This will help us increase our visibility in our constituency,” said a corporator, who got at least three proposals passed on Friday. Not just roads and chowks, even open spaces are being renamed. A playground at Islampura chakala will be known as Mother Teresa Manoranjan Maidan.

• By next week, many roads and chowks will be renamed. This will help us increase our visibility - A corporator, after getting 3 proposals cleared on friday

You name it, they rename it

♦ Chowks: Junction between Rajashri Shahau Maharaj Road and Teli Galli in Andheri East will be named Trikamji Andarji Chatwani Chowk. T junction at Tagore Nagar Group 4, Vikhroli, will be called R L Ghade Saheb Chowk. The one at Mahatma Gandhi Marg-Moghibai Marg in Vile Parle West will be called Anna Saheb Sathe Chowk.

♦ Roads: The road leading to Andheri-Mograpada police outpost will be named Behram Khan Path. A road in Kandivli-Charkop Sector 5 will be known as Om Shanti Marg. A road in Gorai Sector 1 will be called Sant Nirankari Marg Road.


The junction at Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Road will become Kondivate Buddha Leni Chowk

Thanks Fuwad! I've been very confused about what they are really planning to do at Goregaon. I see only two lanes landing on the highway. Is that all they are going to have ? Any ideas ?

SV road traffic will land on service lane of WEH and will merge ahead to WEH heading northbound. WEH southbound traffic will have to take a U turn ahead under WEH jogeshwari flyoveri (space constraints on either side for creating additional 2 lanes between lodha's site and NSE grounds), but mostly pple coming from north use the existing goregaon ROB from under the Dindoshi flyover

MMRDA plans to roll out a 26-km road network

Source: http://www.indiainfoline.com/Markets...ork/5322353267

Quote:
The network includes three flyovers, one rail over bridge, one elevated road and the critical Eastern Freeway.

The motorists in Mumbai and Mumbai Metropolitan Region can now add a spring or two to their vehicular movement as the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has plans ready to roll out a 26-km road network – worth rupees 15.12bn – that will ease congestion on roads. The network includes three flyovers, one rail over bridge, one elevated road and the critical Eastern Freeway.

“The very intent of undertaking the Mumbai Urban Infrastructure Project was to improve road connectivity and also provide east-west connectivity. The Barfiwala flyover and the two ROBs at Milan and Dahisar, provide this much needed east-west connectivity. The Sahar Elevated road will establish a direct link to the international airport and the Eastern Freeway will connect eastern suburbs with southern Mumbai. This network is being developed keeping in view the present and future demands of vehicular movement”, said Mr.Dilip Kawathkar, Joint Project Director (PR), MMRDA.

The 354-meter southern arm of the Barfiwala flyover was opened to traffic in the month of June this year and the 384-meter northern arm of this flyover is scheduled to be thrown open for motorists in the third week of January 2012. This rupees 24-crore flyover will help motorists reach western side of Andheri and back without having to spend extra time at the busy SV Road signal.

The 1,040-meter long and 24-meter wide rail over bridge at Dahisarhas has also been opened to traffic. “Incidentally, MMRDA is the first agency to erect this type of construction in railway property. Never in the past has it happened that any agency, other than the railways, could erect a rail over bridge in railway property, especially in Mumbai region”, said Ms.Ashwini Bhide, Additional Metropolitan Commissioner, MMRDA. The Dahisar ROB is worth rupees 50 crores.

The rupees 42-crore rail over bridge at Milan subway, Santacruz, is 700 meters long and will provide two lanes each running up and down. This ROB will not only provide the east-west connectivity but also solve the perennial problem of water logging as the area is a low lying area. This crucial rail over bridge is heading for completion in the second quarter of 2012 what with most of the resettlement and rehabilitation issues solved including that of religious structures.
The Sahar Elevated Road is yet another critical road link that will please international travelers arriving in or leaving the city. This rupees 288-crore 2-km long elevated road will provide a dedicated link between Western Express Highway and Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. The elevated road provides three lanes each for up and down traffic and is slated for completion in the second quarter of 2012. This project is funded under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) with 35% and 15% of the project cost contributed by GoI and GoM respectively.

The Eastern Freeway is one more project that is funded by the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission. This project is divided in three parts – One, the corridor from P.D’Mello Road to the beginning of Anik-Panjarpol Link Road; Two, the corridor from Anik to the beginning of Panjarpol-Ghatkopar Link Road and Three, Panjarpol to Ghatkopar. The first 9.3-km corridor is worth rupees 531 crores, the second 5-km corridor is worth rupees 148 crores and the third 2.5-km corridor is worth rupees 168 crores – making it a 16.8-km freeway worth rupees 847 crore.

The highlight of the project is the twin tunnel – first in the city – on the stretch from Anik to Panjarpol. The Authority is planning to complete the left-hand-side tunnel, which will provide 4 lanes, by the second quarter of 2012 and the entire project by the end of 2012.

There is development in progress outside Mumbai too. The two very important flyovers – one at Panvel and the other at Kapurbawdi – are coming up outside the city. The 1,700-meter long 4-lane wide flyover at Panvel is being constructed at the cost of rupees 145 crores and the 3,850-meter long and 2-lane flyover with five arms at Kapurbawdi is being constructed for rupees 166 crores. While the Kapurbawdi flyover is expected to be thrown open in the second quarter of 2012, the Panvel flyover is looking at completion by the end of 2012.

“We are confident of rolling out the road network. This year we opened flyovers at Bharatmata-Lalbaug, Maheshwari Udyan-Tulpule Chowk, Barfiwala (southern lane) and Suman Nagar which are serving the city in style. People, normally, take a bit of time to adjust with the new developments and change to newer traffic habits. But, I must say, the city-folks responded to our 11-flyover project splendidly. We now look forward to completing a few other projects in the coming year”, said Dilip Kawathkar, Joint Project Director (Public Relations), MMRDA.

The headline is misleading. The 26 km road network is already under execution

6 roads will be ready by 2012: MMRDA
Quote:
MUMBAI: The coming year will bring some relief to the city motorists as six major road projects totally worth Rs 1,512 crore are slated to be completed.

"These projects are part of the initiative to provide better infrastructure for the city. They include three flyovers at Panvel, Thane and Mumbai, the rail overbridge at Milan subway, the Sahar elevated road and the Eastern Freeway," said a Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) official.

"The rail overbridge at Milan subway, which is estimated to cost Rs 42 crore, will be a boon for motorists," said MMRDA joint project director Dilip Kawathkar.

The 16.8 km-long Eastern Freeway from P D'Mello Road to Ghatkopar, which is being built at a cost of Rs 847 crore,has a twin tunnel. The Sahar elevated road will also provide some relief to international tourists travelling to the airport. The road project that is being constructed at a cost of Rs 288 crore will be ready by the end of 2012.

Barfiwala flyover has really done a magic for Andheri E-W traffic. Just 24 Crores investment has given such a big relief to so many commuters! It saves atleast 10-15 minutes. Hope they build a flyover at JVPD cricle and other E-W junctions at SV Road..
