In another update, Mumbai Traffic Police informed about their modification to the traffic management because of PM Modi’s visit.
“Due to the public event organized at Aljamiya-Tas-Saifiya, traffic management has been modified as follows for the period from 4:30 PM to 06:30 PM on 10-02-2023,” read Mumbai Traffic Police’s tweet.
Mumbai Traffic Police has also suggested some alternate routes for the commuters
- For Andheri-Ghatkopar Kurla Road – Vehicles going through Andheri Kurla Road from Sakinaka Junction will go straight via Sakivihar road through Milind Nagar, L&T Gate No. 8 by taking a left turn via J.V.L.R to Western Express Highway.
- Traffic from Bohra Colony to Andheri Kurla Road via Marol Church will be diverted to Andheri – Kurla Road via Marol Pipeline from Kadam Wadi.
- Commuters must note that the traffic from Bohra Colony to Marol Maroshi Road via Marol Church Road will be diverted with a left turn at Star Farm Marol Church Road and go straight through Marol Gaon Road under Marol Village. The traffic movement on the route will then take a left turn near Savla General Store towards Marol Maroshi Road.
After arriving in the city, PM Narendra Modi will first flag off CSMT-Solapur Vande Bharat Express soon after the second semi-high-speed train linking the financial capital to Sainagar Shirdi.
The Mumbai-Solapur Vande Bharat Express will cover the 455-kilometre distance between the two cities in 6 hours and 30 minutes, reducing the current travel by nearly an hour.
