Parel Flyover Closed for Repair Work

The south-bound arm of the Parel flyover in central Mumbai was closed for traffic on Friday due to repair work of a water pipeline near the flyover.

Closing down of the flyover slowed down traffic around that area causing massive traffic congestion.

The water pipeline burst at the entrance of the flyover on Babasaheb Ambedkar Road.

According to Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials, the repairing work which started on July 12 is expected to be completed today.

Meanwhile, the repair work has affected water supply to many areas in Mumbai and surrounding suburbs like Ghatkopar, Chembur, Sion, etc.

With the maintenance work going on, the traffic is snarled-up on the Eastern Express Highway. The vehicles are diverted to at least two places on the Eastern Express Highway for alternative roads in an effort to clear the congestion. However, many parts of Mumbai are still experiencing a heavy traffic jam.
