Bandra to get two tunnels, another flyover

January 2013
To ensure seamless connectivity to the business hub from the Bandra-Worli Sea Link (BWSL) as well as the airport, and to decongest the busy Kalanagar junction on the Western Express highway, MMRDA will build two tunnels and a flyover connecting BKC (Bandra Kurla Complex) in Mumbai. The authority has proposed these two tunnels,  one from BWSL to BKC and another from BKC to Nandadeep Garden, near the Kherwadi junction, for better connectivity to the airport. A flyover from the Bandra rail overbridge near the BWSL, with two arms, one landing at BKC near Kalanagar and the other heading to Dharavi, has been planned. Expected to cost Rs 400 crore, the project will take two years to execute.
