Had to travel to Thane on 9th & used e-way as usual. In morning, trucks were asked to stop before 1st toll to ease traffic. Didn't find e-way traffic to be too much due to morcha; came across many vehicles holding flags in a dangerous way, folks popping out from windows, waving/shouting slogans. On return journey, morcha vehicles (cars/SUVs/buses) were plenty but not that many to disturb e-way pace, sudden stopping in groups on sides was seen as a norm than exception. Didn't have to pay toll on return journey.

These are holding good for now. Generally, left most lane before rajmachi tunnel is blocked with barricades during monsoon, no such measure seen this year.

Also, what about the news that the Amrutanjan bridge was to be dismantled?
Don't think it will happen so fast, authorities have just reduced footprint at lane entry so that trucks needn't have to be too precise while entering lane.
