Maharashtra caretaker CM Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday tweeted that a "fish belly-shaped" flyover expected to reduce travel time by 30 minutes between Sion and Dharavi has been opened for public. Fadnavis said the 1.6-km long, 17-metre wide and 4-lane BKC-Chunabhatti Connector would provide a faster route to Eastern Express Highway and would also ease traffic towards Thane-Nashik and Panvel-Pune.

'In public interest, I declare that BKC-Chunabhatti Connector (flyover) stands open from today evening, With this, Mumbaikars will now save 30 minutes travel time & avoid traffic congestion at Dharavi and Sion junctions,' Fadnavis tweeted.

A fish belly shaped elevated corridor, passing through BKC, Babubhai Compound, Central Railway (near Sion), Duncan Colony, Harbour Line (Chunabhatti station), Somaiya ground and lands at EEH, is our yet another step towards bringing ease in living for Mumbaikars, the Maharashtra chief minister noted.
