No I don't think so. It's a shortcut to reach Powai via Vikhroli. There is lot of traffic also.

Angry Re: Mumbai Traffic

The tanker-trailers convoy have started again visiting Thane roads in the mornings, I thought they had been taken care of. Dont understand how they are allowed to enter city premises inspite of the timing restrictions. Travelling from Majiwade till EEhighway is nothing short of stress, will need Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in the passenger seat if I need to keep my BP in check.

Not Hiranandani - there is a temple trust that owns the land from Powai end (the gates) till the end of slope (where the commercial buildings are)

Traffic is slow moving from WEH from below the flyover on the way to Jvlr and continuing the same way on jvlr as well.

Hey, come on man! That's the default situation. It would be a news on India TV if traffic in that section is flowing smoothly.

Spotted a Lamborghini on JVLR today around 11:30 AM.

Had also spotted a Red Mini Cooper S below the JVLR flyover on WEH last week. looks like JVLR is a good place to spot super cars apart from the usual Mercs and Beamers.

Today took me 42mins from Churchgate to Malad via Western Railway! The best way to beat Mumbai Traffic!

Past couple of days there has been heavy traffic in & around Tardeo-Nana Chowk area.

Came across this in DNA newspaper from a few days ago.
I am personally very much in favour of slapping the people responsible for our bad roads.
Can we participate?

Filthbag Bangalore Politicos and Corporators require exactly this treatment.
I wish there were a place where one could meet them and slipper the creeps.

It is a lovely city but has been completely, unutterably ruined by the greed, corruption and short sightedness of its political rabble and local yokels who pass for corporators and public service agents. We pay the highest taxes for cars, for fuel, VAT and all sorts of things and yet, get absolutely zilch back.

There is a local campaign called Hole of Shame or something like that If I remember right. But these guys are so very thick skinned that nothing short of a public flogging can make them change.

The dna campaign seems a bit tame. The last couple of days has seen some insane traffic on Bombay roads.

Took me an hour and half from VT to elphinstone road last evening via jj flyover and the lalbaug flyover. I watched a family grow up, have kids and the kids becoming adults all the while waiting for the horrendous traffic to clear.

The drain opening at the end of Gandhi Nagar flyover (towards IIT) has opened up. A few steel pieces are protruding, they will certainly damage tyres. This has been the condition for 3-4 days now and it is going from bad to worse. This is causing traffic bottleneck. Drivers beware of this spot.

Surprisingly, trucks disappeared from roads yesterday (or very few of them were on roads). I was happy that the madness has ended. But from today, it is back to normal. The situation gets so bad in the evenings that trucks block all but one lane leading to toll booth at Thane (from Mulund side).

Is this at the extreme right lane? The entire drain section on the Gandhinagar flyover end while approaching IIT and at the start of the flyover towards EEhighway are in extreme bad shape. Slows down the traffic inadverently.

Kiran - Did you encounter the traffic jam due to the stranded bus on the ROB at Thane? There was one bus stranded on the uphill just before the IIT market signal and one of the Corolloa driver had a near escape from rear ending it. Stopped in the nick of time.

I've always used the extreme left lane on Gandhi Nagar flyover. This is the affected lane, may be the extreme right lane is also affected

There was no bus at Thane ROB, probably it has been towed away, thankfully. IIT area was also clear.
