The construction work for the BKC-Chunabhatti connector is estimated to be completed by November 9, 2019. As a result, it is expected that the route will be ready for use from November 9. The vehicles that will be using the four-lane flyover will be benefitted the most as they will be able to save up to 30 minutes while travelling to the Bandra-Kurla Complex or the Eastern Express Highway.

The opening of the 1.6-km-long and 17-metre-wide flyover is also said to reduce traffic snarls at Dharavi and Kalanagar junctions.

Currently, construction of dividers, installation of sound barriers and safety iron net on rail overbridge and lane marking are in progress. On the other hand, erection of heavy-vehicle stoppers, direction indicators, changing spots for bus stops among others, are in their final stage.

Earlier, Mumbai Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) President Nawab Malik had tried to forcibly inaugurate the Chunabhatti-BKC flyover. Malik accused that the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) officials were deliberately not throwing open the road link to suit the schedule of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

Taking a look at the number of vehicles entering Bandra-Kurla Complex using this flyover, MMRDA in collaboration with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is installing five signals, developing two junctions and installing indicators in the complex. All the proposed work are in their final stage.
