Another large highway project is scheduled to be inaugurated in Mumbai. A 9 kilometer section of the 'Coastal Road' (also known as the Western Freeway) will be inaugurated on February 19, from the Bandra-Worli Sea Link in the north to Marine Drive in the south.

Most of the project is a structure along the coast, but it also includes a tunnel under a hill and under a beach, making it a de-facto undersea tunnel (though only marginally offshore).

The only decent size photos I could find seem to be from a while ago.

First section of this should open in May. It will be an incredibly impressive road. It will surely have traffic jams but will be worth it to increase mobility.

This stretch was already open to traffic southbound, but not northbound. It has opened to traffic today, but will initially only be in operation from Monday to Friday between 7 am and 11 pm, to complete construction.

This satellite image from March 4, 2024 shows the half completed expressway, a few days before it opened for southbound traffic on March 11. It is now also open northbound.
