Mumbai coastal road development commences


Development has started for the highly ambitious Mumbai coastal road with the bhoomipujan being done for the project worth an estimated Rs. 12, 700 crore. This will cover 29.98 kilometres, linking South Mumbai to the suburbs. The foundation stone has been laid at Cumbala Hill’s Amarsons Garden where construction work will soon start. The entire project is expected to be finished in 4 years as per reports.
The first phase of the project will cover the development of a stretch of 9.98 kilometres that will link Marine Drive to the areas in Worli accessed through the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. The project already has a tendering agreement clause where it is stated that contractors will not be paid any more by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). Global tenders were released by the BMC with responses garnered from 17 global and national bidders. 13 bids were received in all and the construction of this project will adhere to global parameters.

The design consultation has been globally outsourced. The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai has started working on the coastal road’s south section which will go to the Kandivali Junction from the Princess Street. Starting at the Princess Street flyover, the south section will finish at Worli. The Section 1 is from Princess Street flyover to Priyadarshini Park while the Section 2 is from Priyadarshini Park to Mahalaxmi Temple. The Section 3 is between the Temple and Maa Hajjani Masjid and Section 4 will finish at the starting point of the Bandra-Worli Sea-Link. This will be 9.98 kilometres in overall length.

The first north section will start from Bandra and finish at Carter Road from where Section 2 will be a sea bridge finishing at Ritambhara College in Juhu. The third section will finish at Kandivali Junction. This north section could be 19.3 kilometres in terms of overall length as per reports. Projects in Kandivali will certainly benefit from this new development. Some of the top real estate projects in Kandivali include Raunak Sai Dham Towers, Ruparel Optima and Mahindra Lifespaces Roots among others.
