The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has confirmed that the second carriageway of Delisle Bridge in Lower Parel, Mumbai, will open in three to four days. The completion of the bridge will improve traffic flow and provide easier access to South Mumbai. The ongoing efforts include adding finishing touches such as streetlights and lane markings. The bridge was closed in July 2018 due to safety concerns and its deadline was extended multiple times.

The ongoing efforts include adding finishing touches such as streetlights, painting, lane marking, and signal system installation. Ulhas Mahale, deputy municipal commissioner, stated that after the completion of these tasks, the bridge is expected to open for traffic within the next 3 to 4 days.

Delisle Bridge, situated in the railway area on NM Joshi Marg, saw the completion of the work on both up and down girders in August. Subsequent tasks included mastic, ramp construction, concretisation, and streetlight installation.

Closed in July 2018 due to safety concerns highlighted in an IIT-B report, the bridge’s deadline was extended thrice. On June 1, one arm connecting Ganpatrao Kadam Marg with NM Joshi Marg was opened for traffic, and on September 17, BMC unveiled a portion of the second arm linking Lower Parel with Currey Road.
