I saw last night that the gap between the old Majiwada flyover and new one is about 3 inches and the work was going on. I did not notice the place this morning. There were no pandals or any other setups. No neta's ego will be satisfied if there are no pandals. So, I doubt that it will be inaugurated today or thrown open to public.

The new exit from Golden Dyes Flyover into GB Road was being washed and cleaned up this morning. I saw it while on my way from Kalyan to Mumbai. They're getting ready to throw it open, no doubt. But when, is the question. Sad that we have to wait for some politician to cut the ribbon.

Here's a bit of good news for people waiting for the Chembur-SantaCruz flyover. After all the lethargy, the railways have green signalled the installation of the girders across the railway lines. They're saying the flyover will be ready by March 2014. Lets wait and see. I'm excited as it will cut my commute by 45 minutes atleast. No more going all the way to Sion to reach Bandra !!!

this will be expedited (meaning it should hopefully be done by March 2014) because of the upcoming Kherwadi flyover, which will cause a huge traffic snarl.

Most of our infrastructure projects will be opened between Jan to March 2014. Monorail, metro, Chembur-Santacruz link and many others. Reason? They will time these just before elections are announced so the memory of the 'gifts' given by the ruling party to us Mumbai citizens is fresh in our mind's when we go to the polling booth!

Politicians have their way with everything ! The World Bank representative in India was quoted in yesterday's newspaper saying that the Santacruz-Chembur Flyover project was the world's most delayed infrastructure project , delayed by over 10 years !!! Shameful, to say the least.
Hopefully the area when the flyover lands in Vakola will be near a link to BKC. As you rightly pointed out, WEH is getting ready for worse snarls in the coming year.

Saw the first signboards installed ( No Overtaking ! ) on the exit point from Golden Dyes (Majiwada) Flyover. And workers cleaning and cleaning the area ! God knows what it is that they are trying to clean so desperately for last two days.

There's so much money that must have changed hands and forced the politicians, contractors to wash themselves clean. Hence the need for such washing. I hope they throw open to the public the stretch without waiting for dignitaries to inagurate. The exit from the flyover for Kapurbavdi, Balkum is yet to be completed.

I was driving on the eastern freeway this morning and I noticed that the work on building the various promised exits and entry points on the route has completely stopped. Any idea why?

I saw lots of pots placed at the start of the flyover. This should be an indication that the inauguration is coming up soon, unless the authorities want to torture those potted plants with hot Sun and exhaust.

On Sunday early, morning I saw street lights on over the section that is supposed to the open soon.

Newspaper says that the CM inaugurated the flyover on Monday morning (18th). However, on Monday night, the entrance to this section was closed and a few policemen were sitting on their bikes!

The flyover is open for sure. I did see a couple of vehicles on the flyover today morning on the way to office. Even the street lights were on.

I did see a few political banners y'day evening, there was an ad about the inaguration in DNA newspaper.

Update:
Used the recently inaugurated Majiwade flyover which starts at the Nashik Flyover and ends at the Cinewonder mall. There are still some road blocks at the start of the flyover which is connected to the Nashik Flyover. Barring one sign at the start of the Nashik flyover, there are no other signs which tell about the new flyover. The flyover was relatively empty as vehicles were still using the old route to cross Majiwade ( Guess many didnt know about the opening as yet). The tarmac is smooth being new and the flyover has some twists bringing a smile when driving.

Last night a 3 car pile up on WEH towards Borivali around 09:00 PM. A maroon scorpio with T-BHP stickers (MH - 15 registered) was also involved. I hope no one was seriously injured.
