There was a major traffic jam on the north-bound stretch of the Western Express Highway between Kherwadi junction and Jogeshwari after a concrete mixer carrying hot tar turned turtle at the start of the Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link road (JVLR) flyover in the early hours of Wednesday.

Despite best efforts, the tar could be cleared only by 8pm on Wednesday, leading to a huge traffic jam all day.

Officials at the Goregaon traffic outpost said around 2.30 am on Wednesday, a concrete mixer heading towards Borivli overturned after its driver, identified only as Chouhan, lost control of the vehicle and hit a divider on the flyover.
