According to the latest reports, citizens will be able to travel directly to Thane from south Mumbai and either way by using the Eastern Freeway without getting down at the Eastern Express Highway.

Based on accounts, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has undertaken the decision to extend the Eastern Freeway from Chheda Nagar junction to Thane. This will be through an elevated road.

This will be done through Kamraj Nagar, Ramabai Colony and Ghatkopar. For those unversed, the Eastern Freeway has two northbound lanes and two southbound ones. Presently, it commences from the P D’mello Road in south Mumbai and ends at the Shivaji Nagar in Chembur.

MMRDA officials have been quoted in narratives elaborating on how the road from Shivaji Nagar was previously meant to be extended to Ghatkopar. However, the plan was deferred since it would have caused the destruction of mangroves.

It has been reported that there was a huge slum pocket coming in the project’s way but the problem has now been resolved.

In other developments, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has proposed to undertake the repair works of a section of the Eastern Freeway that is between Bhakti Park and the entrance of tunnels.

Narratives claim that the civic authority will be spending INR 27.05 crore on the project. In accordance with the proposal, the present patch between Bhakti Park and the tunnel’s entrances has developed many cracks and potholes.
