Coastal Road Phase 2 To Be Inaugurated On June 10: Mumbaikars will be relieved to learn that the second phase of the Mumbai Coastal Road will be inaugurated on Monday, following which the north-bound carriageway from Marine Drive up to Haji Ali will be opened to traffic on June 11.

Bandra-Worli Sea Link (BWSL) and the coastal road will be connected by October 2024.

On March 12, the southbound carriageway of the ambitious coastal road project between Worli and Marine Drive was opened to traffic.

Opposition parties, however, criticized the delay in opening the second phase of the road, which had been scheduled for May 31.

Shiv Sena UBT MLA Aaditya Thackeray took to social media to criticize the delay in opening the road. Chief minister Eknath Shinde announced the road will open on June 10.

According to municipal commissioner Bhushan Gagrani, the road will be open for traffic starting on Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Because of the ongoing work to connect the coastal road to BWSL, the road will be open for 16 hours.

A leak was reported in the south-bound tunnel of the newly-constructed road in the last week of May. Shinde himself inspected the leakage on May 28.

Using injection grouting through joint expansion, the seepage has been sealed, and the upcoming rains should not affect the leakage.

BMC is building a 10.58 km coastal road between Princess Street Flyover at Marine Drive and Worli-end of Bandra-Worli Sea Link that has reduced travel time by 70% and fuel consumption by 34% between south Mumbai and the western suburbs.

There are 4+4 lanes, a bridge on stilts, an elevated road, and twin tunnels. The BMC has spent Rs. 13,984 crore on the project.
