Mumbai Traffic Police have suggested alternative routes for vehicular movement: 
1. Mrunaltai Gore Flyover, Goregaon
2. Balasaheb Thackeray Flyover, Jogeshwari
3. Captain Vinayak Gore Flyover, Vile Parle
4. Andheri Subway, Andheri
5. Milan Subway, Santacruz
6. Milan Subway Flyover, Santacruz
7. Khar Subway, Khar

There has been a lot of chaos, panic among residents of Vile Parle because earlier when a section of the Gokhale Bridge collapsed, the bridge was kept closed and the traffic was diverted to Captain Vinayak Gore Flyover. There were huge traffic jams on either side – upto Koldongri Signal / Hanuman Road in the East and Upto Irla in the West.  
There are so many projects going on in Mumbai (i.e. Metro, Flyovers, Coastal Road and many others), extreme bad road condition which has caused traffic jams in all parts of the mumbai.  Residents frustration is at peak. Local authorities aren’t paying heed to any of this and work is going on at snarls pace.

We all must learn from Japan and other developed countries where work is given to reputed contractors and is seen to it that completed on time. 

We have so many avenues from where we can learn and implement things but our local authorities fail to learn and all Mumbaikars face the brunt. It’s still a long way to go mumbaikars!
