The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) has recently given its nod to the new flyover project to connect Nerul east to west near the railway station. Tenders and work order for the same is likely to be issued soon. A budget of Rs 28.24 crore has been allocated for the civic project.
In Nerul, the flyover will connect sectors 21 and 28 between Nerul police station and Terna Institute on the Seawood end of railway station. Residents have been demanding this flyover for a long time.
The proposed flyover link will reduce the travelling time of the people from both sides in the node. Currently, the residents risk their lives by crossing the railway tracks to cut down on time. To cross from east to west of Nerul, one has to take a longer route via the Rajiv Gandhi flyover at the Juinagar end or use the Seawoods flyover at the CBD end.
The distance between these two flyovers is 4 km. The general body of NMMC recently gave its nod to float tenders and issue work orders for the flyover proect.
