Mumbai: Sealink-BKC flyover set to open in May

Construction of the Kalanagar flyover, which aims to open up the second flyover from Bandra-Worli Sealink to Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) for traffic movement, is in full swing. The flyover is set to open by the end of May 2021.

Currently, construction work is ongoing with only 50 labourers on site, whereas 115 labourers were available before lockdown, according to the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) .

The Authority launched one of the crucial steel girders of this flyover, attaining 90% of progress in project work to date.

In February 2021, it had opened the first flyover from BKC to Bandra Worli Sealink, providing major relief to commuters from traffic congestion.

The new Bandra Worli Sealink-BKC flyover is 725 metres long, comprising two lanes. The other flyover from Sion Dharavi link road (free left) towards the Sealink will only be ready by November this year. This 349 metres long flyover work has been affected due to Metro Line 2B.

The total project cost has reduced to Rs 103.73 crore due to the reduction in the scope of work due to the metro line integration from Rs 163.08 crore, saving Rs 59.35 crore, MMRDA has told the media.

RPS Infraprojects, a subcontractor of Simplex Infrastructures, appointed in January 2020, is carrying out the construction work of the Kalanagar flyover.
