MCGM CONSIDERING UNDERPASS PROJECT

underpassHere is a plan that will bring some cheer to pedestrians complaining of congestion on the city’s roads. In a move that will facilitate movement of private and public vehicles, at the same time giving importance to pedestrians, the MCGM is looking at the possibility of creating an underpass for private vehicles. Officials are currently studying a proposal which envisages an underground passageway at three locations in south Mumbai. One will be on MG Road, from Azad Maidan to Cross Maidan, while there will be two others at Veer Nariman Point Road: one from Eros theatre towards Marine Lines and the other from Churchgate circle junction to the public works department building. The road above the passageway will be restricted to public transport and pedestrians. The aim is to reduce congestion and give priority to pedestrians. The outgoing traffic from Churchgate station into the business district is very high. The number of pedestrians as well as vehicles is extremely high and at this junction, the underground pass is likely to be helpful. Bureau report – NMTV News.
