As per the details shared by the NHAI’s official from Panvel to Kasu stretch, he said that the 38 km of the route has been concreted, and the remaining km is a part of flyers and bridges.
In order to reinforce the road surface, some areas of the road are being watered on a daily basis. To give a temporary solution to the traffic flow, steel slags have been spread across the flyover and bridge.
Another package up to Nagothane in Raigad district
