Bridge Condition on NH8 at Mumbai Entrance near GB Road
This petition had 71 supporters
This petition is for the bridge near Ghodbundar road which is between bhayander and vasai on Mumbai-Ahmedabad National Highway-8. Around 40 policemen and 30 traffic wardens have been assigned round-the-clock duty on the bridge. Heavy vehicles were stopped from using the northbound bridge on September 10. Light vehicles are driving at a speed of 20 kmph.
This is the Entrance to Mumbai for all the people travelling via NH8 from different states also its entrance to Mumbai from all the traffic coming via GB road from Thane to Mumbai. The no. of daily vehicals travelling is so high and people who suffers this much amount of time is too high that is not tolerable.
Two-lane south-bound bridge is used for movement of vehicles. The bridge opens up for vehicles headed towards north for about 20 minutes. During this period, the south-bound vehicles will be halted. When vehicles heading south get on to the bridge, north-bound vehicles will be halted.
The National Highway Authority of India has still not taken a decision till when the bridge will be shut. In December 2013, when the bridge was shut for repairs, it reopened after six months.
This is second time in last 4 years and the issue itself takes between 6 months or 1 Year to get fix.
During this time millions of daily commuters waste their time, fuel and money every day in this 40 minutes. During summer situation becomes intolerable because of the heat waves. During Rainy season time increases because of the weather conditions.
People are losing business because of this, people who are travelling to offices in Navi Mumbai or Thane losing their ample amount of time because of this issue.
I am not Civil Engineer or part of government, but how much time it takes to create a new parallel bridge? or fix it as long term solution.
In last 3.5 years bridge has shut down for more than 1.5 years. The repair work which was done before 2 years didn’t helped and again we are at the same situation.
All the people who wants the resolution for this please sign the petition, so that it can reach to Government officials to take this on high priority.
