Mumbai Metro work causes traffic bottlenecks

Underground Metro corridors were a better option for the city, especially for commuters in the western suburbs, as the proposed elevated lines have compounded the traffic woes of motorists, according to experts.

Metro construction work on the Western Express Highway (WEH) and Linking Road, that runs from Dahisar to Bandra, for two corridors meant to ease traffic congestion, has seen major snarls on these roads, said experts.
