i have driven on the western express highway...the moment you cross the sahar airport signal and go towards south mumbai, the traffic is well disciplined...even the BEST drivers respect their lanes...adding to that is the fact that Autorickshaws dont run beyond bandra....

TOI: Former attorney general to be displaced by road-widening

Former attorney general to be displaced by road-widening

Quote:
The tony Nepean Sea Road from Kemps Corner to Priyadarshini Park is to be widened and one of the project-affected persons is former
attorney general of India Soli Sorabjee. The BMC, last month, began the process for the acquisition of setback area to widen the road from the present 40 ft to 90ft.

This is the fourth attempt by the BMC in the past 10 years to acquire open and built-up set back area to widen the road. "The 90-ft road line was decided in 1969. But each time the civic corporation issued notices, residents moved court on the plea that only when the BMC would widen the entire road at one go, they would part with the setback area on their plots. This was not possible as acquisition is done in stages and so the plan would go back into cold storage,'' said a senior civic official.

R A Rajeev, additional municipal commissioner in-charge of roads, said the work order for widening the road had already been issued but as the acquisition process had not been completed, the work could not be started.

The widening of the road is a precursor to the building of the Worli-Nariman Point link which is part of the Western Freeway and includes the Bandra-Worli sealink that is likely to be commissioned in March next year.

"There is a likelihood of a tunnel being constructed at Priyadarshini Park that will connect the link to Marine Drive. Then the Nepean Sea Road will constitute a part of the Worli-Nariman Point Link. Considering the traffic that will come in, it is necessary to widen the road. Most of the land that is to be acquired is open setback area and around 10% is built-up area. We will be acquiring both simultaneously,'' said Rajeev.

This time the BMC has approached the work in a more methodical manner and is attempting to do it all at one go. "We carried out a detailed study of the number of properties in the area, the size of each property, the setback area to be acquired in every case, the number of trees and then went ahead with issuing the notices,'' said civic officials.

In all, the BMC plans to acquire 45,000 sq ft of open setback (on which there is no construction) and 4,000 sq ft of built-up area. Around 99 trees are identified to be cut down while another 54 will be transplanted.

On Thursday, one of the residents, C Gokhani whose property is affected by the roadline, gave up the open setback area to the BMC. "Lodha builders too have acceded the open setback area to the BMC and other developers who are carrying out redevelopment on the road have been informed. They are inclined to hand over the setback area,'' said sources.

But other residents have raised issues, some of them referring to past court cases and other queries. Two of the most sensitive areas include the built-up area setback to be acquired from properties belonging to the family of Soli Sorabjee and the owners of Gamadia Estate. "A decision on the two properties will be taken at the level of the municipal commissioner,'' said sources.

Kandivli flyover to close ‘killer’ level crossing

Quote:
Fourteen years on, Raj Guru flyover at Kandivli was finally thrown open to traffic on Saturday. Following which, locals have now intensified their demand to close a ‘killer’ level crossing in the area.

In last one year, the level crossing has reportedly claimed 300 lives.

Authorities had claimed since the level crossing was the only vehicular link between west and east Kandivli, it would be closed only after the flyover was made operational.

“Locals have been blaming the level crossing for accidents, but I think they should blame themselves first,” said Kandivli resident Yagnesh Furia. “I have seen GRP’s (Government Railway Police) fining commuters to deter them, but people don’t listen. The railways need to close the level crossing to stop such mishaps,” he added.

“Railway officials have been telling us they can shut the crossing only after the Kandivli flyover was made operational. They should keep their word. I have witnessed three accidents in the last year.

Maybe souls of accident victims at the crossing will rest in peace once it is finally closed,” said Darpan Gangrani of a office next to the level crossing.

A WR spokesperson said they were considering closing the crossing soon. “Now that the flyover is open to traffic, we will take a decision to shut the level crossing soon.

There is a foot-overbridge adjoining the level crossing but people don’t use it. Over 5,000 people die every year in the city because they cross train tracks instead of using foot-overbridges,” he added.

Some relief there. The flyover could have well prevented a number of accidents. Not only this a better traffic flow would have already been in place had it not for our clumsy id10tic government.

Oh well, its better late then never!!!

Jogeshwari Vikhroli Link Road (JVLR) - Edging towards Completion

Close to Gandhinagar: The Gurdwara and marble shops have been eliminated. Construction on at full swing.





Traffic is bad as usual on this section. Imagine unloading a 6-lane road onto a 2-lane one and this is what you get every morning and evening. But, hopefully, once this section is done, traffic will ease. They should also think about a monorail or metro on the JVLR section. Lot of people commute on this route.






This section of shops is still to be demolished. Wonder how they willl finish the work without doing it.



Hirandani approach road nearing: Traffic is faster and 6-lane section nearer.



In front of Powai lake:



Powai lake itself is getting a beautiful waterfront. Once that is completed, it will be really beautiful. Also, they should consider cleaning the lake at the end of every monsoon. I saw a lot of water hyacinth. Sorry, no pics but i can assure you the work is in advanced stages of completion. I could see the jogging track and stuff. I leave you with this article about the future waterfront.

http://cities.expressindia.com/local...ate=2006-10-31

A lot of trees have been cut for JVLR. I hope they can plant something on the powai lake front to compensate for the loss.

After L&T junction, its a smooth ride on JVLR upto Andheri - a really good 6-lane road with minimum signals. This was reported before as well.

TOI: Eastern Freeway to be completed by 2010

Eastern Freeway to be completed by 2010

Quote:
MUMBAI: The Eastern Freeway, which will connect the island city with Chembur, is likely to be completed almost a year before the scheduled date.
Work on the 16-km road started in June 2008 and it was given a timeframe of 36 months.

"There are not too many impediments in construction and we feel that the work may finish in the second half of 2010,'' said Milind Mhaiskar, additional commissioner of MMRDA.

Apart from connecting the eastern suburbs with the island city, the Eastern Freeway will also act as a dispersal system for the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL), connecting Sewri with Nhava.

Though the Mumbai Port Trust agreed to give land in 2007, the commencement of the work took some time as MbPT authorities were a little sceptical about the space left for their trailers which come to the port. At present, the MMRDA has started installing pillars on the ferry wharf side.

The project is funded under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission. The plan was initially slated to cost Rs 340 crore and due to an escalation of costs, it could cost around Rs 531 crore.

"Unlike the construction of other bridges and roads, which is hindered by heavy traffic, things are easier here as the traffic load is less,'' a senior MMRDA official said.

"In fact, vehicles moving towards the eastern suburbs will have smoother exits-one through BA Road which will have new flyovers and the second via the Anik Panjrapole road and the Eastern Freeway,'' said Mhaiskar.

"It will be a much faster ride towards Panvel and Navi Mumbai as the work on the 5-km Anik Panjrapole road has gained in momentum. A patch of land was handed over by the BMC to the MMRDA recently. This road will be completed by mid-2010,'' said S Nandgirikar, chief engineer of the MMRDA. The Anik-Panjrapole road also has a 300-mt tunnel.

The Eastern Freeway will also be the longest elevated road in the city. Nearly 8.9 km of this road will be elevated and one can travel from Colaba to Panjrapole in just 20-25 minutes.

Mhaiskar said that while travelling to Pune via the proposed MTHL, a person will enter the Mumbai Pune Expressway at a village called Chirle near Nhava. This will speed up the journey for south Mumbai residents via the Eastern Freeway, MTHL and then the expressway to Pune, thereby saving more than one hour of travel time.

This is good news... L&T is constructing this, isnt it? Their Sahar Elevated Road project is also going pretty fast - faster than the Metro.

CM flies over jam to inaugurate flyovers Posted: Jan 25, 2009 at 2330 hrs IST

Ganesha gets safe farewell, Mumbai says no to terrorMumbai: Having tasted public outrage for arriving late on his first public meeting on Friday, Chief Minister Ashok Chavan made it in time for the inauguration of two flyovers and an underpass in the city, courtesy a chopper ride over the city’s traffic jams.

According to senior Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority officials, Chavan opted for the aerial mode of transport as he had engagements at Dhule after the function.

At the public interaction on Friday, Chavan was scheduled to arrive at 4 pm, but was over 40 minutes late, leaving those assembled rather agitated.

On Saturday morning, Chavan reached Thakur Complex junction in Kandivali at 10 past nine and threw open the 644-metre flyover for motorists. Later, he inaugurated the flyover at Santacruz domestic airport junction. It is a two-way carriageway, one measuring 714 metre. A vehicular underpass 350 metre long and 24 metre wide at Bhor junction, Kandivali, was also opened to public.
Chavan said the flyovers would smoothen traffic. “Mumbai traffic will now get relief,” said Chavan. He added that there would be a change in the environment due to increasing corridor speeds for faster connectivity. “Mumbai will transform into a world-class city after the completion of various development and infrastructure projects,” he said.

Metropolitan Commissioner Ratnakar Gaikwad said, “A set of flyovers at B A Ambedkar Road, under construction, will be completed soon. Among these flyovers, those near Sion Hospital and Hindmata junction will be completed by May 2009.” These flyovers had been delayed due to utility shifting. “We made the chief minister aware of the difficulties while constructing flyovers like utilities, slum rehab, etc. He appreciated our progress,” Gaikwad added.

How about we dedicate a small space on the side on the each road for bicycles just like Delhi and have lane markings so that people can still follow the order??

Don't you think that bicycles are probably one of the causes for slow traffic?

I mean these guys are making roads, but small things like this are left unnoticed?

It's a good idea, but is there really any space left on Bombay streets?
First flyovers take away space (rather than underpass), then elevated metro and monorail. There needs to be more space for cars and bikes. At the moment, I think an added bike lane would only cause more traffic.
