BANDRA WORLI SEALINK MAY BRING TRAFFIC JAM NIGHTMARES FOR COMMUTERS

The 5.6 km zip across from Bandra to Worli on the sea link may end in six to seven minutes, but brace for a crawl through the Worli seaface stretch. While planning to commission the much-awaited Bandra Worli sea link by mid-June, the authorities are also readying for criticism on the expected bottleneck at the Worli end. To add to that, MSRDC has failed to get environmental clearance for the two proposed car decks to avert traffic snarls. According to sources, a state-level agency could not clear the proposal; it needed the go-ahead from the Centre. A senior MSRDC official disclosed that getting clearance from the Centre was a lengthy process, which was why it was not pursued. MSRDC officials estimate that around 5,000 PCUs, or passenger car units, with one car counting as 1 PCU and one bus about 3 PCUs, per hour would use the 5.6 km sea link during peak hours.
