The Eastern Freeway in Mumbai has been very useful to commuters, but it has also added to the bottleneck at Panjrapole junction in Chembur. To avoid this, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) now plans to ease the congestion at Panjrapole junction in Chembur by building an additional flyover.
By the end of this month, commuter will be able to zip to Chembur from south Mumbai in about 15 minutes. The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) will open a portion of the Eastern Freeway from Orange Gate to Panjarpol. The remaining part up to Ghatkopar-Mankhurd Link Road (GMLR) will be opened early next year.
