The road will be open for traffic movement only between 8am and 8pm on weekdays since 15 percent of the work is still left. The work will be carried out at night and on the weekends. This is to enable contractors to complete pending work.

Entry will be from Bindu Madhav Thackeray Chowk on Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan Road (Worli Seaface). After going through an underwater tunnel, motorists can exit at Princess Street flyover in eight minutes at the speed of 80 km/h.

Only one arm of each of the three interchanges — at Haji Ali, Worli, and Amarsons — will be made operational in the initial phase.

CM Eknath Shinde said the creation of a green area over 70 acres will be the highlight of this project, which will join with Racecourse green open space of 120 acres.
