Jogeshwari – Goregaon Link Bridge now open for use

Mumbaikers  can now use the Jogeshwari – Goregaon Link Bridge which was inaugurated by Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray yesterday.

This bridge is expected to reduce vehicular congestion and reduce bottlenecks for the travellers who commute between the east and west regions. Peak hours have always been a cause of concern for any average user who ends up spending 90 minutes to get to the other side of the road on account of slothful traffic.

Good news for all right?
