Commuting time between South Mumbai and Ghatkopar will be reduced to 30 minutes now as the entire 16.4-km Eastern Freeway will become completely operational from Monday. Chief Minister, Prithviraj Chavan, will inaugurate the last leg of the 2.8-km Panjarpol-Ghatkopar link road as well as the 580-metre south-bound lanes of the Kherwadi junction flyover of the over Rs 1,400 crore freeway project on Monday, according to an official release.
“The completion of these two stretches means completion of the entire 16.4-km-long Eastern Freeway. It now provides unhindered connectivity from southern Mumbai to the eastern suburbs,” said the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA).
The Eastern Freeway is a controlled-access freeway that connects P D’Mello Road in south Mumbai to the Eastern Express Highway at Ghatkopar. “Commuters will now be able to reach Ghatkopar from Orange Gate in a mere 30 minutes. The motorists will avoid traffic congestion at Dadar, Sion, Chembur, Kurla and Mankhurd,” the release said.
