Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has announced an ambitious infrastructure project, the Alibaug-Virar Ring Road, aimed at transforming connectivity in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). The project aims to drastically reduce travel times, particularly from Thane, Navi Mumbai, Kalyan, Bhiwandi, Mira-Bhayander, Vasai-Virar, and Alibaug to Mumbai.

Currently, journeys to these locations from Mumbai can take several hours by local train, bus, or private vehicle. The Alibaug-Virar Ring Road is designed to complete the same journey in just one hour, providing a significant improvement in transportation efficiency and reducing traffic congestion.

During the inauguration of the Coastal Road, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde revealed plans to connect the Atal Setu to key infrastructure projects like the Bandra-Worli Sea Link, Versova-Dahisar Coastal Road, Dahisar-Mira Bhayander Elevated Corridor, Bhayander-Virar Link Road, and the Virar-Alibag Corridor through the Coastal Road from Marine Drive. This extensive network will cover more than 222 km of the MMR, offering seamless connectivity from South Mumbai to North Mumbai, extending from Dahisar to Virar-Alibag, and linking Mira Bhayander. Additionally, the route will connect to Navi Mumbai, creating a comprehensive transportation network.
