The dynamic and dedicated MP, Milind Deora ensured the speedy execution of the new Eastern Freeway in Mumbai, which was thrown open to commuters on June 13th 2013.
Two out of three segments of Mumbai’s Eastern Freeway, comprising the country’s second longest elevated road and the first-ever urban tunnel, were inaugurated on 13th June 2013 by Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan.
The 17-Km freeway will allow the commuters to go for a hurdle-free drive between Orange Gate in south Mumbai to Panjarpol in Chembur in just 20 minutes. Motorists need not pay toll for the road. Moreover, two-wheelers, three-wheelers and heavy vehicles will not be allowed on the freeway.
The first segment is the elevated road that will start from P. D’mello Road in south Mumbai and run up to Anik-Panjarpol linking road. The 9.29-km elevated road will be 17.2 meters in width and is the second longest after the one in Hyderabad.
