Infrastructure Projects Which Impacts Palava
Connectivity to Palava City from Mumbai has always been difficult, but not anymore with the infrastructural development in the coming times.
a. Ghatkopar – Ghansoli Bridge: There is good news for commuters who are travelling from Mumbai to Navi Mumbai; MMRDA has inched closer to completion of detailed project report for Ghatkopar-Ghansoli-Kopar Khairane creek bridge. It will be a 6 lane link road. This link road furthure extends from Ghansoli to Shilphata through Mahape. Currently, reaching Palava City takes around 1 hour from South Mumbai. But with the operation of Ghatkopar Ghansoli Link Road this will reduce to a mere 30 minutes.
