“The stretch is closed as the U girder for the Metro will be placed on Tuesday. We have made arrangements for motorists as one lane on the southbound stretch will be converted into a counter lane for motorists,” said Sanjay Jadhav, deputy commissioner of police, traffic (western suburbs).
Commuters are advised to start early to reach their destination, said Jadhav.
Meanwhile, the Goregaon-Malad Link road is turned into a one-way route from Pandurang wadi junction to MTNL junction owing to construction of a flyover on the stretch.
The flyover work is likely to take six-seven months, traffic officers said.
