On Monday, the long-awaited north-bound arm of the Dharamveer Swaraj Rakshak Chhatrapati Sambhaji Mumbai Coastal Road, spanning from Marine Drive to Worli, was finally inaugurated. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, accompanied by Deputy Chief Ministers Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar, marked the milestone event in a vintage Rolls Royce.

Vehicular traffic on this new stretch will be allowed starting Tuesday. This follows the south-bound arm, which opened for traffic in March and is operational from 7 am to 11 pm on weekdays, facilitating travel between Worli and Marine Drive.

The northern section will only be operational between Marine Drive and the vehicular interchange at Haji Ali, covering approximately 6.25 kilometers. The south-bound section spans an eight-kilometer stretch. The entire project, estimated at Rs 13,000 crore, aims to connect the Bandra Worli Sea Link with Marine Drive through a series of tunnels, interchanges, and bridges.
