Western Suburbs , Mumbai :
The construction of the coastal road along the Western fringes of the city is likely to begin next year . It's Bhoomipoojan is likely to be held on 19th February , alongwith Chhatrapati Shivaji Statue in the Arabian Sea .
In a significant boost to Mumbai's coastal road plan, which has the potential to decongest traffic on the western corridor, the central government has given in-principle approval to amend the CRZ (coastal regulation zone) notification in a way that some coastal stretches can be reclaimed to reduce the cost and time of implementation, ensuring there is a lesser burden of toll on Mumbaikars.
Currently , the Western Suburbs are being ridiculed with traffic . S.V. Road , Linking Road , Link Road , Peddar Road and the Western Express Highway are crumbling under vehicular load . Another high speed road in the West can be a total game changer .
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said , "The coastal road project has the potential to decongest 60% of Mumbai's traffic and a detailed project report is being prepared by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC)".
