The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority ( MMRDA) stated on Saturday, "The north and south ramps of the Eastern Freeway at Anik Wadala Road will be opened on April 6."

The construction of these two ramps was to be completed in January, but the work was delayed due to unforeseen technical reasons.

"The authority has completed the construction of bridges across Mahul Creek and the approach roads on either side of the elevated portion for entry and exit at Anik Wadala Link road," said Dilip Kawathkar, spokesperson, MMRDA.

"These ramps can be used for to and fro movement towards the North (Chembur, Vashi, Navi Mumbai and beyond). For movement to and from the South (CST) the ramp can be used by taking a U turn under the RCF flyover. Commuters should follow the signage to use the ramps," he said.

The Eastern Freeway from Orange Gate to Panjarpol junction has been in operation since June 2013. The remainder section from Panjarpol junction to the Ghatkopar Mankhurd Link Road is expected to be opened later this month.
