PROJECT STARTED IN OCTOBER 2011`
The 1.6 km-long bypass will connect Durgadi Bridge to Bhiwandi and Thane, skirting the busy Shivaji Chowk
Cost of the project is Rs29crore
If one is driving from Dombivli to Thane now, one has to cross Patri Pool, Shivaji Chowk and Durgadi Bridge. The route has massive traffic congestion as tankers, school buses and trucks ply on this road without an alternative way. The Govindwadi Bypass will divert heavy vehicles from this route and ease congestion, giving a smoother ride for motorists.
