In three to four days, the second carriageway of the Delisle Bridge in Lower Parel, Mumbai, is expected to open, according to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). When the bridge is finished, traffic will flow more smoothly and South Mumbai will be easier to reach. Adding finishing touches like lane markings and lamps is part of the ongoing work. Due to safety concerns, the bridge was closed in July 2018 and its deadline was repeatedly extended.
Bombay The second carriageway of the Delisle Bridge in Lower Parel is scheduled to open in three to four days, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) stated on Friday, following the unauthorized “inauguration” by Shiv Sena (UBT) MLA Aaditya Thackeray on Thursday night.
Iqbal Singh Chahal, the civic head and administrator, has instructed the BMC’s bridges department to speed up the procedure. When this vital bridge segment is open, traffic will move smoothly in both directions, giving residents easy access to South Mumbai.
Adding finishing touches like lamps, painting, lane marking, and installing signal systems are among the continuing projects. The bridge is anticipated to open for traffic during the next three to four days following the completion of these operations, according to Ulhas Mahale, deputy municipal commissioner.
The construction on the up and down girders of the Delisle Bridge, which is located in the railroad area on NM Joshi Marg, was completed in August. Mastic, ramp building, concretization, and streetlight installation were the next tasks.
The bridge was closed in July 2018 after its deadline was three times extended because of safety issues brought up in an IIT-B assessment. One arm of the project, which links Ganpatrao Kadam Marg with NM Joshi Marg, opened for traffic on June 1. A section of the second arm, which connects Lower Parel with Currey Road, was unveiled by BMC on September 17.
