Mumbai Roads Closed for Repair

New Delhi : Mumbai has been in a constant state of chaos since the coronavirus outbreak. While the Maharashtra government struggles to find a way to balance things out and manage the pandemic in the state by imposing a strict lockdown but as the restrictions begin to get eased and the ban on the movement vehicles was permitted, Mumbai has been struggling with its usual load of traffic on the road. After being stuck at home for nearly 3 months, people have finally started stepping out to head to work. Due to the lack of public transport availability people have started using their private vehicles and turned to carpools to get to work which has now led to a lot of chaos on the roads. 

Even after Mumbai Police set forth new guidelines which do not allow people to travel beyond a 2km radius for anything other than attending office or in case of medical emergencies. While this comes as a positive rule to limit the movement of people, it still hasn't affected the way the traffic is acting. With limited parking space in the city, the lack of good roads and the construction, traffic has still been on the rise which can slow us all down. In order to make movement within the city easier, we all need to know the right roads to take and which ones to avoid but that isn't as easy as it sounds in a city as big as Mumbai. While the need for economic activities to start and function smoothly, people need to be able to get to work in the financial capital of the country. Now, in an attempt to make things easier for everybody involved, here's a list of roads that you should avoid while travelling within the city limits as they are shut due to construction or repair work as reported by the Free Press Journal.
