BMC in its budget for 2019-20 is likely to announce its intention to use their reserve funds for infrastructure projects like GMLR and Mumbai Coastal Road. One of the most ambitious infrastructure projects of BMC — the Rs 38 billion Goregaon-Mulund Link Road (GMLR) — has inched closer to reality post the approval from Sanjay Gandhi National Park authority. The six-lane road will start near Film City, go five meters under SGNP, and end at Mulund having no negative impact on the biodiversity of the park.
The proposed project is a twin tunnel road designed for 3+3 lanes. It will start in Film City and end at Mulund East in Nahur village near Amar Nagar. The length of the road including approach road is 5.5 km (4.7 km length of the tunnel). The total length of GMLR will be 14 km.
Mulund in central Mumbai has witnessed a sea change in terms of infrastructure development and has emerged as one of the fastest growing suburbs for premium residential development.
