Excited after the Centre’s environment ministry’s final nod to the first phase of the coastal road project — from Princess Street in Marine Drive to Carter Road in Bandra, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) wants to show you what the project actually means and how it will make travel smoother for you.
The civic body, in a video, has given a visual representation of the different phases of the project and the changes it will make to the existing infrastructure.
Here are some screen grabs of the video:
The cost of the first phase of the eight-lane road, with two dedicated bus lanes, is estimated to be around Rs7,000 crore.
It will include an undersea tunnel from Princess Street to Priyadarshani Park, followed by a coastal road until Worli, a connector to Bandra-Worli sea link from here and at Carter Road on the other side.
The BMC is looking at global bids and the selected contractor will be asked to deliver on the BMC-approved design or select his own, whichever is more cost effective, informed the official.
