By July 2023, Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will complete the construction of the Mumbai coastal Road Project (MCRP), which is intended to solve traffic problems in the city. The beachfront road will link Borivali in the north with Marine Drive in the south. It consists of two subterranean tunnels. Below, you can read the full report from SURFACES REPORTER (SR):
It will be India's first underwater tunnel, and it will traverse beneath the Arabian Sea. The project will later be extended to the coastline route and the suburbs, including Dahisar, Mira route, and Bhayander.
The Bandra Worli Sea Link (BWSL) and Marine Drive will be connected by the high-speed corridor via a network of arterial roads, tunnels beneath the city, and vehicular interchanges.
The project's initial deadline for completion is November 2023. By May 2024, the entire road is anticipated to be available to traffic, with the corridor projected to be largely open by then.
