Construction is currently underway for a significant component of the Mumbai Coastal Road Project (MCRP), managed by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

This phase involves the creation of a vehicular underpass designed to streamline south-bound traffic from Prabhadevi or Worli towards Nariman Point.

Spanning a length of 550 meters, this underpass will stretch from Worli Seaface to the Worli interchange of the coastal road. Notably, this marks the project’s second subterranean road, in addition to the two-kilometer undersea twin tunnel linking Marine Drive and Priyadarshini Park (PDP). Officials anticipate its completion by the end of October.

The underpass’s entry point is planned near JK Kapur Chowk in Worli. It will feature two lanes: one directing vehicles towards the Bandra Worli Sea Link (BWSL), while the other connects to the primary south-bound carriageway of MCRP, leading towards Nariman Point. Presently, the coastal road operates partially, catering exclusively to south-bound traffic on weekdays from 8 am to 8 pm.

Scheduled for operation by May 2024, the second phase of MCRP promises substantial advancements. Employing the Austrian tunneling method, the underpass will run beneath Khan Abdu Gaffar Khan Road, paralleling the Worli Seaface.

The MCRP, with an estimated cost of ₹ 13,000 crore, spans 10.58 kilometers and features three vehicular interchanges, enabling seamless entry and exit from the coastal road.
