Western Express Highway to get underpass to ease traffic-free drive to airport

Friday, 28 May 2021

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has proposed vehicular underpasses and widening of the existing Juhu-Vile Parle flyover in Mumbai, Maharashtra. 
The move will facilitate traffic-free driving experience to travellers of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International (Terminal-2) and Domestic (Terminal-1) Airports.
Once ready, motorists can drive at 40 km per hour in these underpasses reducing the existing travel time. 
Since a contractor for the project has been selected, a groundbreaking ceremony on 31 May 2021 along with starting the proposed 20 km trial run on Metro Line-2A (Dahisar to DN Nagar) and Metro Line-7 (Dahidar East to Andheri East) has been planned. 
At T2, two underpasses will be constructed at an investment of Rs 111.94 crore and at T1 one underpass and widening of Juhu-Vile Parle flyover will be done together at an investment of Rs 76 crore. 
T1 project is expected to be completed in 18 months, while T2 in 24 months. The defect liability period after completion of work for both will be five years.
R P S Infra Projects Ltd has been recently awarded the contract through tendering process for both the T2 and T1 underpasses construction and flyover widening work.
As per the plan, for access control on WEH from Bandra to T1 a controlled underpass (-1 level) with drains has been proposed. The length of the underpass is 0.384 km including approaches. 
The underpass will be of two lanes and 10.25 mtr width. The widening of the flyover at the Junction on each side by one lane of 3.5 mtr is proposed. The length of the stretch of widening in direction from Dahisar to Bandra is 0.458 km and from Bandra to Dahisar is 0.239 km. This underpass route from Bandra to Domestic Airport (-1 level) will offer free right turn, reducing signal timing and streamline traffic. For the existing Juhu-Vile Parle flyover widening of one lane towards Dahisar and one lane towards Bandra is proposed. 
For access control on WEH from T2 towards Dahisar and Bandra, two controlled underpasses with drains have been proposed. From the International airport towards Dahisar underpass at (-2 level) below the ground of length 1.035 km in width of 10.25 mtr, while another underpass from the International airport towards Bandra at (-1 level) below the ground of length 0.505 km in width of 10.25 mtr is proposed.
At present, motorists from T2 to Dahisar side have to first take a left turn and then take a u-turn below the flyover to go towards Dahisar. Hence direct movement through an underpass ramp is provided at -2 level. 
Similarly, traffic from T2 to Bandra side moves at grade and some vehicles take slip road and long distance travellers take the flyover.
