Mumbai, India: In a bid to alleviate traffic congestion around the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport Domestic Terminal (T1) Junction, the newly constructed Terminal 1 Flyover was opened for public use on Saturday. The inauguration ceremony was graced by Union MoS Ramdas Athawale, Mumbai Suburban Guardian Minister Mangal Prabhat Lodha, and MMRDA Commissioner Dr. Sanjay Mukherjee.

The Terminal 1 Flyover, situated on the Western Express Highway (WEH), is poised to play a pivotal role in easing traffic woes in the vicinity of the bustling airport. Experts anticipate that the flyover’s strategic location will significantly enhance traffic flow, particularly during peak hours when the T1 Junction witnesses heavy congestion from thousands of vehicles.

Spanning a length of 790 meters, including the approaches, the newly inaugurated 2-lane one-way flyover provides a width of 8 meters. It extends between Nandgiri Guest House and Sai Baba Mandir, Bhajiwadi, facilitating smoother movement of traffic bound for Bandra from the International Airport T2. Strategically positioned at the parallel end of the Juhu-Vile Parle Elevated Flyover, the Terminal 1 Flyover aims to streamline traffic management in the area.

The opening of the flyover is expected to bring relief to commuters traveling from the T2 Junction to Bandra, effectively resolving conflicts that often arise between traffic from T2 Terminal to Bandra and traffic from Andheri to T1 Terminal/Vile Parle. Furthermore, the flyover’s construction is anticipated to decongest intersections beneath the WEH, enhancing overall connectivity, reducing travel times, and curbing fuel consumption.

The Terminal 1 Flyover represents a significant infrastructure addition to Mumbai’s transportation network, promising improved efficiency and safety for commuters navigating the bustling city streets.
