Bus Lane Optimisation at Jogeshwari Vikhroli Link Road Back

Location: Jogeshwari Vikhroli Link Road, Mumbai
Year: 2010


JVLR is very important east-west connection in northern part of Mumbai. The city has very few east-west linkages. After Dharavi Link road, there are a few roads connecting eastern & western suburbs and only one metro link. This puts tremendous pressure on the existing road linkages.

JVLR has a huge number of BEST and private buses running at 150- 200 buses per hour. MESN has proposed a dedicated bus lane at JVLR. There was an opportunity to optimize the road space usage and improve the carrying capacity of passengers by prioritizing road based public transport.
