The Mumbai Coastal Road project started on October 13, 2018 and is being built with a projected cost of Rs 12,721 crore. The first phase saw only the south-bound tunnel being open to the vehicular traffic, while the second phase will see the north-bound tunnel also being opened to ease congestion on the arterial roads of the city. 

The mega project is cited to be a game changer for the financial capital’s ever bustling needs of more room. The complete project will connect the south-most part of Mumbai at Marine Drive with the northern-most part at Kandivali, via the Bandra-Worli Sea Link (BWSL). The Mumbai Coastal Road is the second such project for the city in a span of a year with the Atal Setu commencing operations in January.
