The Suman Nagar flyover in Chembur, under construction for the past five years, is likely to be completed by July.

The 500-metre flyover being built at a cost of Rs 25 crore was meant to ease severe bottlenecks along the Eastern Express Highway. Started in 2006, the flyover was meant to reduce congestion at the key traffic junction.

“More than 75% of the construction work on this flyover has been completed. We will complete the remaining by July,” MMRDA joint project director, PR Dilip Kawathkar, said.

The Suman Nagar flyover is among the eleven planned by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) to ease vehicular jams at various crucial junctions around the city.

The flyovers at Thakur Complex, Dindoshi, domestic airport, Malad junction, Navghar Junction, Hindamata and Sion hospital have already been opened for traffic.

The flyover at King’s Circle-Tulpule Chowk has also been partially opened and is expected to be fully operational by May. The MMRDA will also open the flyover at Lalbaug in May.
