Car Culture in Mumbai: Eastern Freeway
Slow moving traffic behind the barrier that hides the incomplete parts of the Eastern Freeway.
The Freeway was meant to open after the rains when the roads that were just laid and the exit at Shivaji Chowk was redesigned to handle the traffic but the newspapers thought otherwise. They wanted the Freeway opened before it was fully ready and had their way. It is now open for cars. It is not open for the main people it was built for - the trucks that use the Mumbai Port.
The Eastern Freeway would open up the Port for more business because it links to the NH4 that connects the Deccan and NH3 that goes to the Northern Deccan and towards MP and Agra.
