The second phase of the Coastal Road in Mumbai was inaugurated by the Chief Minister on Monday. This second phase is opening for Mumbaikars from Tuesday (11 June 2024). The journey from Marine Drive to Haji Ali can be completed in a few minutes through this route. A 16-hour journey can be made on this coastal road from 7 am to 11 pm. The second tunnel of Dharamveer, Swarajyaksha Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj Mumbai Coastal Road (South) was inaugurated on Monday after inspection by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Ministers Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar.

Like the coastal road expansion, the cabinet will also be expanded soon

This new phase will provide relief to Mumbaikars from traffic jams. The road to Worli has been opened today. On this occasion, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde said that this route is 6.5 km long and the next third phase will be started on July 10. Earlier this route used to take 40 to 50 minutes, now this phase can be completed in 9 minutes. All the necessary systems have been installed in this underground route. Saying that this road will soon be connected to Worli Sea Link, the Chief Minister made a tough remark that like the expansion of roads, the cabinet will also be expanded soon. This time he avoided answering the question related to Raj Thackeray.

This will be beneficial

The second northbound underground tunnel starting from Marine Drive in the much-hyped Mumbai Municipal Corporation coastal road project will be opened for traffic from this afternoon. The total distance of 6.25 km from Marine Drive to Haji Ali will take only ten minutes to pass through the tunnel, so good news for Mumbaikars as they will be able to travel at a faster speed. This will speed up the traffic from Tardeo and Peddar Road towards Worli Bandra due to the traffic passing through this tunnel.

The tunnel will be open for traffic for five days a week, i.e. Monday to Friday from 07:00 am to 11:00 pm, i.e. a total of 16 hours. And the road will be closed on Saturday and Sunday as maintenance work will be carried out on the project for the remaining two days of the week.

Chief Minister Eknath Shinde inspected the route

Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, along with his colleagues Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar, travelled in a vintage car to inspect the tunnel. The recovered car was taken through the Coastal Road Tunnel, through which the tunnel was inspected.
