Even the though the Western Express Highway (WEH) is partially shut due to repair works by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), the motorists will not have to slow down while driving on the Thakur Complex flyover in Kandivli (E) because it is being done at night.

The north-bound arm of the flyover will remain shut till January 18 from 11 pm to 6 am every day in order to prevent traffic situation on the WEH during the morning and evening peak hours, which is unmanageable, due to the ongoing metro construction work and locals being shut for general public.

However, alternate routes for north-bound motorists would be Malad subway and Rajguru flyover in Kandivli (E) to reach Link Road and SV Road.

Recently, the MMRDA had announced plans to construct three vehicular underpasses while also widening the flyover near the domestic terminal or T1 junction of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport. This is expected to ease traffic congestion on the Western Express Highway (WEH) which is situated near the airport.

The MMRDA had sought the services of American firm Louis Berger Consulting to provide suggestions to improve the movement of traffic on WEH. The upgrade to the flyover and the new underpasses were recommended by the firm, MMRDA officials said.
