Keeping in mind the increase in traffic once the new project of L&T would come up near the Seawood-Dharave railway station, CIDCO along with the railway authorities is going to develop a road over bridge at an estimated cost of Rs 34 crore. Nerul is known as one of the biggest node of Navi Mumbai. Since the establishment of the seawood-Dharave railway station, the commuters have no option to cross railway tracks to reach from east to west. Apart from this CIDCO has also sold a nearby plot to L&T where the company is planning to bring a shopping mall, multiplex, banking complex and this region is bound to see huge traffic in terms of people and commuting. Hence CIDCO has decided to develop a Road over Bridge along with the railway authorities at a cost of Rs 34 crore. While CIDCO had issued a notice to the contractor for the building of the bridge in 2005 itself, they did not receive the requisite permission from the railway authorities. At the moment CIDCO has once again released tender for the same. It plans to complete the project in 24 months after signing of the contract.
