The Maharashtra City and Industrial Development Corporation recently sanctioned the second costal road in the Mumbai region that will connect Kharghar with Belapur.

The commuters will experience smooth connectivity between from source to destination and this approval will also pave the way for easy commutation to the proposed international airport in the city.

The concerned department informed that the project work will commence once we get environment clearance and the authority is estimated to incur a cost of more than Rs. Rs 270 crore to develop this route.

The department also informed that the road will become ready for public operations by 2021.

In 2018, the CIDCO [City and Industrial Development Corporation] floated tenders to develop the first coastal road that connects Navi Mumbai airport and Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link and Sewri.

In the first stretch of MTHL-Panvel Coastal Road, the construction of three flyovers at nodal road junctions, two bridges and one rail overbridge is planned. The first costal route will offer connectivity with the proposed Navi Mumbai international airport via the Seawood-Uran railway line and the Amra Marg.

This road will begin from Jalmarg junction near Spaghetti housing complex, via Sion Panvel highway by a flyover over Kopra village and will connect to the existing road at Sarovar Vihar while running along the creek side.

An intelligent traffic control system will regulate vehicular activity on the entire stretch and it will also have a provision of service duct to avoid flooding.

The second route is 9.5-km long road that connects Kharghar, Amra Marg and the water terminal at Nerul. The authority will develop the same in two phases.

The real estate market here will witness boost as the increasing population and infrastructural development in the city is making people shift to Navi Mumbai. All this is likely to result in increasing property rates here.

However, Kharghar that already has a property rate of Rs. 8,000 per square foot may witness any increase.
