Route Map & Design

The project’s alignment through Mumbai is city is complicated and involves the rehabilitation of 800 families from 1,100 slums in Worli’s Kamgar Nagar.

Its alignment at Sewri starts at the Eastern Freeway from where it will cross the railways’ Harbour Line, pass over RA Kidwai Road and Acharya Donde Marg, cross above the existing flyover at Ambedkar Road, Elphinstone bridge in Parel and flyover at Senapati Bapat Road and then make its way through Kamgar Nagar and Dr Annie Besant Road to terminate at Narayan Hardikar Marg.

The project includes two rail overbridges (RoB) at Sewri and another two-tier bridge at Prabhadevi. The latter crosses the Central Railway and the Western Railway lines.

An official PDF route map will be added here when available. Until then, here’s a grainy map taken from a slide show:
