Metro work to up traffic snarls in Mumbai

With construction work on the sixth Metro line, namely Lokhandwala-Vikhroli Metro-6, starting by this year-end in the city, traffic movement on major arterial roads like Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Road (JVLR) and roads in Powai and Lokhandwala will get affected due to barricading and diversions.

Currently, traffic diversions and restrictions are already in place at several locations in south Mumbai, Link Road, LBS Marg and Western and Eastern Express Highways where construction work of around five Metro lines are on.
