Residents of Kalyan and Dombivli, who make a daily trip to Navi Mumbai, may be in for some relief in the next two years.


The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is now planning to construct two flyovers at a cost of Rs. 90 crore on the Mahape Shil Phata Road, easing commute for passengers. The work on the flyovers is likely to be completed by the end of 2012.

The 5-km Mahape Shil Phata Road connects Navi Mumbai with Mumbra, Kalyan, Dombivli, Ulhasnagar, Ambarnath and the Taloja Industrial Area.

“One 500-metre flyover will come up at the Pipe Line junction while another 800-metre flyover will come up at Mahape,” MMRDA joint project director, Dilip Kawathkar, said.

The MMRDA is spending close to Rs1334 crore under the Mumbai Urban Infrastructure Project to build flyovers in the city.

The MMRDA has constructed 11 flyovers in the city of which seven flyovers — Sion junction, Hindmata, Thakur Complex, Malad junction, Santacruz, Navaghar junction and Dindoshi junction — are operational, while King’s Circle-Tulpule Chawk,Lalbaug, Burfiwala and Suman Nagar flyovers will be thrown open to motorists later in the year.
