The construction of double deck flyover and it ramps seems very messy and complicated. CG, is it going to be a simple on-off ramp something like this-



Or more complex interchange something like this-

The construction site was lyin idle for 2 yrs or so bcz of various PILs filed thats why u can also see some segments blackened due to constant exposure to nature over the yrs. The roads all arnd all dug out as there is no vehicular traffic nw. But hopefully after the work is over they wil restore it.

The interchange wil be on first deck similar to some in chennai.....kind of roundabouts

It will be similar to the first one...a simple diamond interchange without any cloverleaves.

Sorry for my amateurish "paint" skill.

Starting from top.The blue and red lines are at same level comin from kurla side,after crossing the railway lines the blue lines pillars tapers down while the red line pillars goes higher.The Pink circle is where there wil be a roundabout on 1st deck with all the traffic combinations one can imagine where the arms of kurla terminus,kurla station road also meet.The red line and blue line lands and runs at grade for a few meters(marked in black line) where traffic from 1st deck can enter/exit red line if they want to.

Yellow lines is entry/exit for traffic towards amar mahal Jn.

The red line is again airborne which finally meets EEH ahead

CG, thanks a lot for the drawing, that explains everything. I am just disappointed with the design involving a roundabout at the first level for traffic coming from LTT and Kurla. That is going to get clogged pretty soon and in few years BMC/Mumbai Police will come up with the idea of putting signals on a frigging flyover!

Here is my amatuer-ish attempt at 3D-fying the description and diagram that Coolguyz provided, using the same colour coding that he has used. Hopefully this gives a better idea of how the entire layout will look visually.

Good work there KD, only hitch is amar mahal exits runs at ground.The flyover after the kurla terminus lands completely on ground.Also regarding congestion on the 1st floor,there wont be that much traffic there, mostly pple from Thane,NM wil use the top flyover to go over directly to BKC and surroundin areas

We had that in Bangalore till 2009.

So I assume it'll be a roundabout like this one in Chennai:
12°57'40.63" N 80°08'42.92" E

The pillars of Jogeshwari flyover on the east are going up!!? thats a new development. Are the planning to cross the WEH flyover with these ramps ? If yes, then its a great plan but makes things complicated on the ground. I think Land acq on the eastern side is not a problem but resettlement is, as mmrda/ bmc has to build new bldgs to house the slum dwellers near the flyover.
This is wat i meant regardin jogeshwari flyover pillars

Thanks for the pics CG. Crossing WEH flyover could only be the reason for this, i suppose.

Panjarapol / Shivaji Chowk is a major intersection on the Sion-Trombay road, as you go from Chembur towards Navi Mumbai / Pune.

The bridge you see is being built perpendicular to the Sion-Trombay road, and will connect the Ghatkopar-Mankhurd Link Road (off Eastern Express Highway near Chedda Nagar, Chembur) with the refinery side of Chembur , eventually connecting to Anik, near Bhakti Park / Imax

World’s best planners to tackle Kalanagar traffic

http://epaper.timesofindia.com/Defau...&ViewMode=HTML
The chronic traffic congestion at Kalanagar junction in Bandra (E) has been turned into a challenge for some of the greatest urban planners across the world.
BMW Guggenheim Lab, a mobile urban think-tank which aims to create concepts and designs for building spacious, comfortable cities (see box), has launched a competition to redesign the junction, which handles around 60,000 vehicles an hour during the peak time.
Entries to the competition — organised with the help of Mumbai Environmental Social Network (MESN) — close on January 19. The best entries will be forwarded to the city’s planning authorities, including the traffic police, which is one of the patrons of the competition.
Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Vivek Phansalkar said, “Some of the participants may have first-hand experience of the problems at this junction, and they could be the ones providing with solutions.” BMW Guggenheim Lab and MESN officials say that the redesign competition is being held “to restructure the junction’s traffic flow and explore ways to refit its infrastructure with new public spaces and pedestrian functions”.
Ashok Datar from MESN said, “Kalanagar junction is unique, as it handles traffic from five roads that merge there, besides traffic on and below the flyover. MMRDA had suggested designing of the junction and the competition will help us with ideas.”
