There is always heavy traffic on Palava junction which causes major inconvenience to around 2 lakh travellers daily, that is why the flyover work is going on for many years by MSRDC to reduce the congestion, which was stalled for many years due to land acquisition issues.
On Thursday, Kalyan Lok Sabha MP Dr Shrikant Shinde held a meeting with the MSRDC officials and reviewed the work of the flyover.
During meeting MSRDC officials informed about development of bridge till date saying that, “At present, 60 per cent of the work of this bridge has been completed and the railway has also approved the construction of the bridge. The work of preparing the steel structure of the flyover is in progress and after the launching of the girder, other works will be speeded up”.
Dr Shinde said, “A meeting will be held to clear the hurdles in the bridge work due to BPCL and one route of this bridge will be started by December 2023 while MSRDC has said that they will try to start the second route in February 2024”.
After this bridge is opened for traffic, it will help to reduce the traffic congestion on Kalyan-Shilphata road and help travellers from Kalyan-Dombivli, Navi Mumbai, Thane and Mumbai.
