Teen Hath Naka in Thane to get sec­ond fly­over ABOUT THE JUNC­TION

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - HT NAVIMUMBAI - Megha Pol megha.pol@hin­dus­tan­times.com

The Teen Hath Naka junc­tion, one of the busiest in Thane, may soon be de­con­gested.

The Thane Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (TMC) has pre­pared a fea­si­bil­ity re­port for a mul­ti­level fly­over at Teen Hath Naka junc­tion which will soon be sub­mit­ted to the union min­istry of sur­face trans­port.

The project aims at de­con­gest­ing Teen Hath Naka by dis­tribut­ing the traf­fic into dif­fer­ent lev­els so that the wait­ing time at the sig­nals is re­duced.

The cor­po­ra­tion has planned a sec­ond fly­over over the ex­ist­ing fly­over and an un­der­pass for the pedes­tri­ans.

A round­about and elon­gated arms on the ex­ist­ing fly­over to ease the con­ges­tion are also on the cards.

A civic of­fi­cer re­quest­ing anonymity said, “The cor­po­ra­tion has pro­posed to di­vide the traf­fic at Teen Hath Naka into three lev­els — the ground level is for com­muters go­ing to­wards LBS Marg and east and west side of Thane sta­tion, the ex­ist­ing fly­over is for in­tra-city traf­fic and the third, a newly pro­posed sec­ond-level fly­over, is for peo­ple go­ing or com­ing from Kalyan or Nashik.”

The new two-way fly­over will start from Ko­pri Bridge and con­nect to the Cad­bury fly­over so that peo­ple go­ing to­wards Nashik or Kalyan can have a smoother com­mute.

Most heavy ve­hi­cles can use the fly­over.

The ex­ist­ing fly­over will also be mod­i­fied.

An elon­gated round­about will be con­structed so that ve­hi­cles can have arms con­nect­ing to LBS Marg, Mu­lund and Gokhale Road.

Civic com­mis­sioner San­jeev Jaiswal said, “We have pre­pared a fea­si­bil­ity re­port of this project worth Rs240 crore which will be sub­mit­ted to the min­istry of sur­face trans­port. If it is not ap­proved by the min­istry, we will take it un­der the Amrut scheme of the cen­tral govern­ment and if it is not even ap­proved un­der Amrut, we will build it with our own funds.”

Jaiswal said the project will cut down travel time of the mo­torist and de-con­gest the sig­nal.
