Due to the ongoing construction work by MMRDA, the kopri bridge in Thane will remain closed for commuters on Saturday and Sunday. 

The bridge will be shut for commuters travelling from Mumbai to Thane and vice-versa from Saturday, 10 pm to Sunday, 9 am, and from Sunday, 11 pm to Monday, 6 am, for both light and heavy vehicles.

According to an official notification, people have been asked to take the diversions that have been issued by the traffic police to avoid congestion.

For light motor vehicles

Going towards Mumbai from Thane and Nashik-Mumbai Highway via the Eastern Express highway, the Naupada service road leading upto the Kopri bridge will remain closed.

Instead, commuters from Thane and the Nashik-Mumbai Highway can reach the Eastern Express Highway by taking the Airoli bridge route. Those travelling from Ghodbunder Road can take a left from Teen Hath Naka and reach Mumbai via the LBS Road or the Anand Nagar check post.

For heavy vehicles

Going towards Mumbai from Thane via the Nashik Highway, the Kharegaon toll plaza will remain closed. For those travelling via Ghodbunder Road, the road under the Majiwada bridge and the road to the left of it will also be shut.

They can instead take the Airoli bridge to proceed to the Eastern Express Highway to eventually reach Mumbai.

Commuters have been advised to use alternate routes and diversions to reach their destination to avoid any inconvenience.
