Ganpati Visarjan in Mumbai: Traffic Police Issues Advisory on Road Closures and Alternate Routes

As the Ganesh mandals in Mumbai kick off the processions for the immersion of Lord Ganesha idols, marking the culmination of the vibrant 10-day festivities, crowds have gathered at various points across the city. To minimize disruptions for commuters, the Mumbai Traffic Police has issued advisories detailing road closures and alternative routes.

In their latest advisory, the Mumbai Traffic Police has announced a no-entry zone from D.N. Nagar Road, Santacruz (west) to Mahatma Gandhi Road, and the Villeparle (East) section of Captain Vinayak Gore Bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic from 10:00 AM on Thursday until 5:00 AM on Friday.

The traffic police has also provided information about road diversions. Vehicular traffic heading from D.N. Road towards Captain Vinayak Gore will be rerouted through S.V. Road, Khira Nagar, taking a left turn from Milan Sub-way Junction to reach their desired destination.

Restrictions in the central area include the transformation of Dr. Annie Besant Marg in Worli into a one-way road for southbound traffic. Additionally, on NM Joshi Marg, traffic from Shingte Master Chowk to Bharatmata Junction will be halted before the arrival of the Raja of Lalbaugh on BA Road, which runs northward near Bharatmata Junction.

In the Azad Maidan traffic division, temporary traffic suspension is scheduled for Mahapalika Marg on Thursday. During this time, vehicular movement will be redirected, starting from CSMT Junction and proceeding along D.N Road and L.T Marg, ultimately culminating at Metro Junction.

In South Mumbai, under the jurisdiction of the Colaba traffic division, three key roadways—Nathalal Parekh Marg, Captain Prakash Pethe Marg, and Rambhau Salgaonkar Marg—will be designated as ‘No Parking’ zones, with exceptions only for emergency vehicles. Motorists are urged to adhere to detour signs placed along these routes.
