The Southbound arm of Mumbai’s Coastal Road will be opening for motorists on Mach 11 BMC Commissioner I.S. Chahal said on March 7. The south arm of the pathway also includes the tunnel part of the road. Motorists can make a commute via this road from 8 am to 8 pm. 

The chief minister of Maharashtra, Eknath Shinde, declared on March 7 that the first portion of the Mumbai Coastal Road will open soon after an inspection. He also talked about the project’s progress and advantages.

As stated by CM Shinde, approximately 120 acres of land have been reclaimed for the development of a garden along the Coastal Road, with another 120 acres confiscated from the Mahalaxmi Race Course. The Mumbai Central Park, which would cover approximately 320 acres, will be established here.

BMC hopes that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the project. On February 19, the public was expected to get access to the southbound Coastal Road, which runs from Worli to Nariman Point. However, for various reasons, the inauguration was postponed. The Maharashtra government and the civic authority of Mumbai want the Prime Minister to launch the project, which has been ready since last month.

An official from BMC stated that everyone wants the prime minister to launch this project because it is revolutionary and includes the world’s first automotive tunnel beneath the ocean’s surface. Additionally, BMC just conducted a load test on the coastal road. The inauguration is critical since the Code of Conduct for the Lok Sabha election is set to take effect the following week.

“We hope that the prime minister will virtually launch this project,” said Civic Chief I. S. Chahal.
