Mumbai Traffic Police recently enforced new speed limits on nine major roads, including several flyovers, effective from December 13, 2023. The Maharashtra law enforcement agency took to social media (formerly Twitter) to announce these reforms, aiming to reduce inconvenience for citizens and enhance the flow of vehicular movement. Notably, these new speed limits are applicable to all vehicle types.

Mumbai, known as one of India's busiest cities, often grapples with traffic congestion, leading to delays and discomfort for commuters. As part of their traffic management plan, the Mumbai Traffic Police identified nine crucial roads in the city affected by the revised speed limits.

P D'Mello Road and Shahid Bhag Singh Road, along with the stretch from Godrej Junction to Opera House (Maharshi Karve Road), now have a speed limit set at 50kmph. Similarly, the speed limit for Haji Ali Junction to Mahalaxmi Railway Station on Keshavrao Khade Marg has been capped at 50kmph.

Further, the speed for Bindu Madhav Chowk to Love Grove Junction, Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan Road, and Diamond Junction to MTNL Junction, Avenue-1 BKC, is now restricted to 60kmph.

The Jogeshwari-Vikroli Link Road (JVLR) features varying speed limits. East and West travelers on the JVLR flyover are advised to maintain 70kmph speed, whereas at stops, slopes of flyover ramps, turns, and curves, the speed limit is reduced to 30kmph.

Moving to the Veer Jijamata Bhosle flyover in Chembur, the speed limit stands at 60kmph, dropping to 40kmph on the ascending and descending ramps. Similarly, the new flyover at Chheda Nagar and Amar Mahal flyover in Chembur have speed limits of 60kmph and 70kmph, respectively. However, the speed limit reduces to 40kmph on the ascent and descent of these flyovers.

In their statement shared on the platform, the department stated, "To avoid inconvenience to citizens & ease vehicular movement, following 'Speed Limits' shall be permanently declared on these roads for all types of vehicles in the jurisdiction of Greater Mumbai with effect from 13/12/2023 from 00.00 hrs. onwards till further orders."
