I would say concretize the whole square just at at the junctions or lets say the important junctions. Suitable ducts can be placed below the concrete slab for the utility cos.
In future concretization projects they should plan for carpeting the concrete layer with a layer of asphalt. The parking/curb lanes need not have paver blocks. They also can remain asphalt so that the whole road looks uniformly surfaced.
Another option is to have non-reinforced concrete layer in the curb lane. So utility cos can dig through it and replace the removed part once their work is done.

First look: Rs 4,300-crore Versova-Bandra Sea Link
http://epaper.timesofindia.com/Defau...&ViewMode=HTML


Artist’s impressions of the Versova-Bandra arm of the Sea Link, which in the future will extend all the way to Nariman Point along Mumbai’s western coast, shows three entry/exit points on the nine-km stretch, and one spot for a proposed extension in the future.
The plans, accessed by Mumbai Mirror, have already received one set of environmental clearances, and the MSRDC (the nodal agency for the Rs 4,340-crore project) is now preparing the groundwork for the tender process.
The link runs approximately 900 metres off the coast. The Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority (MCZMA) has cleared the project, and passed it on to the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MOEF) with a recommendation that it be given a final go-ahead.
A marine geo-technical investigation, to obtain information on the physical properties of rock and soil on the sea-bed, began in October, and the MSRDC hopes to begin construction in January, 2014.
A five-year deadline has been set for the project to be completed. 45
Minutes that commuters will save, according to MSRDC estimates 14
The number of signals you will skip by using the Versova-Bandra Sea Link 1500 Metres. The average depth of the superstructure 9.3
Kilometers. The (approximate) length of the Versova-Bandra Sea Link 16
Kilometers. The total length of roads that will be built, including the three connecting arms 2019
The year this segment of the Sea Link will be completed, if all goes to plan


The project plan includes a 150-metre cable-stayed bridge (similar to the stretch at the Reclamation end of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link) at Juhu beach, to ensure water transport is not affected.


Balance cantilever bridges with 100-metre spans will be built near Chimbai in Bandra, Khardanda and Juhu Koliwada – all fishing villages – to ensure fishermen can navigate the waters without difficulty.


At Versova, the Sea Link will join inland near Nana Nani Park, from where commuters can go right towards Juhu Circle, or left towards Yari Road. This connector will consist of six lanes (three in each direction).



The Juhu Koliwada connector will cut land on the stretch of beach at one end of Khar Danda, near Juhu Koliwada, and then go further inland before turning left towards Juhu road. This stretch will have four lanes.




The Versova-Bandra Sea Link meets the Bandra-Worli segment at a clover leaf intersection. A few kilometers before this, at the Otters Club end of Carter Road, space has been marked out for another connector, which can be built in the future.




complete look.

The connector at Juhu Koliwada is absolutely crazy and almost impossible, without rehabilation and road widening

The proposed connector at Carter road in future should be built initially, IF at all this project sees the light of the day. That is a very big 'IF' there.

God damn it, build the metro. The upper middle class of Bombay will be ready to leave the car at home anyday, if comfortable public transportation is available

Will it be possible to go underground all the way upto Juhu and then may be continue with the sea link till Versova . The entry - exit points at Juhu and other places might be a challenge but it will do away with all the wrangling and protests that are soon to follow .
I seriously feel this wont see the light of the day and actually it shouldn't as none of us would want to gaze at a bridge sitting at Band stand or Juhu for that matter .

Seriously WTF is this?

What about extending the BWSL to Haji Ali and Nariman Point? Isn't that the first priority? In fact forget about that, at least build a frigging interchange at the Worli end of BWSL to remove the bottleneck yaar! If this project ever sees the light of day, I won't be surprised if at the end they decide to cut costs and replace the three interchanges with signals right on the sea-link

I was surprised this came out of nowhere. Our government doesn't have a stable plan. Why are they going back and forth with feasibility studies when they need to look for a long term and permanent solutions.

Stable.

Govt. itself is stable, wotsay?

Allow me. Govt. dept.'s try parliamentary, public consensus building.
Politics is run by goon netas, so these public consensus building measures are mostly a farce. Goons hijack public meetings, with a nod & wink by presiding netas. Make believe democracy.

MumbaiMMR, fantastic post, thanks. Consider it done, why? Because in democracy the ideas are bottom up supposedly, read my para above; it's a top down model. Top=Minister.

+1 earlier plan was to go underground at bandstand, joggers park and Juhu beach. Don't know why this suddenly changed. I even oppose worli Haji ali sea link. I do not want to go to sea side to see the bridge.

I believe, it will be a problem for planes and helicopters taking off from Juhu Airport, even if the bridge is built at a distance in the sea..

True that.

I don't see that kind of thing happening in Versova, that place is saturated big time.

AFAIK, there is nothing to be done on western side. It is just the regular road south of Grand Hyatt, joining WEH. CG and others may clarify.

I did notice that they were widening a small bridge near the WEH junction. I assume they'll widen the entire road to six lanes.

That "jinxed" bridge, as described by Coolguyz, seems to be almost ready now, thank goodness. It was horrifying to imagine all the SCLR traffic coming through that tiny road.

Isnt that road south of Hyatt, wide enough?. I have never gone east of Hyatt on that road. But, I think it is 6 lane wide till Hyatt.
