VOL­UME OF TRAF­FIC RISES

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

In 1989, at the time of con­struc­tion of JNPT, the Karal Phata bridge was con­structed on the rail­way tracks. JNPT was the only con­tainer port at the time in the area and the traf­fic was less.

The Karal Phata area wit­nesses huge traf­fic snarls due to the in­creas­ing num­ber of ve­hi­cles ev­ery day — around 8,000 heavy ve­hi­cles go to and fro JNPT ev­ery day. Light ve­hi­cles in the area too is grow­ing rapidly. The pro­posed fly­over is ex­pected to en­sure smooth traf­fic in the re­gion.
