October 9, 2013


MUMBAI: The state government will build three more flyovers on the Thane-Ghodbunder Road, said deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar.Ajit, who had called a meeting at Mantralaya on Tuesday to discuss issues of Thane, said that he would follow-up with chief minister Prithviraj Chavan to urge the MMRDA to build the flyovers.

Excise minister Ganesh Naik proposed that these flyovers be constructed at Anand Nagar, Kasarvadavali and Ovala junctions. He also proposed 10 footover bridges so that pedestrians can safely cross roads without obstructing traffic. Thane municipal commissioner Aseem Gupta said that the civic body would construct four of the footover bridges—one each at Tatvagyan Vidyapeeth, R-Mall, Brahmand junction and Kasarvadavali—while Pawar said the MSRDC would construct the remaining six on Ghodbunder Road.

Ajit also announced the setting up of an Islamic cultural centre at Mumbra.
