'Link two flyovers over Hindmata to ease traffic'.
The Mumbai Traffic Police have written to the BMC suggesting them ways of easing congestion on the Hindmata, the main arterial road connecting the north-south-east corridor.
The traffic police have suggested to the civic body to join the two flyovers which are constructed over the Hindmata junction in Dadar east.
'The junction remains flooded every monsoon as it is a low-lying area and maximum number of vehicles pass through the junction' said Qaiser Khalid, ACP(traffic).
The traffic police said that the distance between the two flyovers is just 50 meters and could be easily connected. According to them the junction on the intersection of the Hindmata Lalbaug flyover and the Dadar TT flyover is perpetually flooded during monsoon, even during days when the city gets light rainfall.
More than one lakh vehicles pass through the Dadar junction daily and, with the flooding, go through almost two hours of traffic jam to cross the two junctions. 'The Babasaheb Ambedkar Road is the most affected during monsoon as the junction connects south, central, east and west corridors of Mumbai,' said an official.
