The Maharashtra Public Works Department (PWD) has announced a three-day roadblock on the Mumbai-Goa highway, effective from July 11 to 13. This block is essential for the construction of a new bridge at Pui near Kolad. The daily roadblocks will occur twice, from 6 am to 8 am and from 2 pm to 4 pm.

The block is necessary to facilitate the installation of girders for the new bridge at Pui. This critical infrastructure project aims to improve connectivity and safety on the highway.

Alternative routes for travel from Mumbai to Goa

  • 3. Vehicles on the Khopoli-Pali-Wakan National Highway can be diverted via Pali-Rawalje-Kolad or Pali-Rawalje-Nizampur-Mangaon and then routed back to the Mumbai-Goa Highway

Alternative routes from Goa to Mumbai

The Mumbai-Goa highway spans approximately 555 km, with nearly 460 km falling within Maharashtra, extending to Patradevi in the Sindhudurg district. Of this 460 km stretch, 84 km is under the construction of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), while the remaining 376 km is being developed by the state PWD. 

Out of the 376 km under the PWD, 266 km of work has been completed. The project has been divided into ten segments. The NHAI aims to finish the 84-km stretch between Panvel and Indapur by December this year.

The 84-km stretch managed by the NHAI is divided into two packages. The first package, covering 42.3 km from Panvel to Kasu, has achieved over 85% physical progress, with nearly 39 km completed. In addition, about 9 km of the 23.7 km parallel service road concreting has been finished. Work on vehicular underpasses at Gadab in Pen taluka is also ongoing.

The roadblock is expected to cause significant disruptions to traffic. Commuters are advised to plan their journeys accordingly and consider alternative routes during the specified times to avoid delays.

A PWD official stated, “The installation of girders is a critical step in the construction of the new bridge at Pui. We request commuters to bear with us during this period as we work to enhance the infrastructure on the Mumbai-Goa highway.”

This roadblock is a temporary inconvenience for a long-term benefit, aiming to improve the overall travel experience on the Mumbai-Goa highway.
