Dadar Metro Station Construction Begins: Traffic Diversions Implemented from April 25

The construction of Dadar underground metro station under Metro Line 3 project will lead to traffic diversions affecting key areas like Steelman Junction, Senapati Bapat Road, and Gokhale Road.


MUMBAI (Metro Rail News): The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (MMRCL) is set to commence construction work on the Dadar underground metro station as part of the Metro Line 3 project. Consequently, significant traffic diversions will come into effect from April 25, impacting crucial spots in Dadar like Steelman Junction, Senapati Bapat Road, and Gokhale Road.

Closure of Northbound Gokhale Road:

  • The northbound stretch of Gokhale Road, from Gadkari Chowk to Steelman Junction, will be closed to all vehicular traffic. However, the southbound lane will remain open as usual. Both directions will be designated as “no-parking” zones to ensure smooth traffic flow.

One-Way Route on Ranade Road:

  • Vehicles will be restricted from entering the Senapati Bapat Statue towards Steelman Junction on Ranade Road, as it will be converted into a one-way route.

Diversion Routes:

  • Vehicles proceeding from Portuguese Church and northbound on Gokhale Road will need to take a left turn at Steelman Junction. They will then proceed along Ranade Road, Dadasaheb Rege Road, and Gadkari Junction to reach their destination.
  • Vehicles heading towards Dadar TT will turn right at Steelman Junction, then proceed along Ranade Road, Paneri Junction, take a left turn along NC Kelkar Road, and finally reach Kotwal Garden.

Metro Line 3 Overview

The Metro Line 3, also known as Aqua Line by MMRCL, is a 33.5km long underground corridor stretching from Colaba to Bandra to SEEPZ. It comprises 27 key stations, of which 26 are underground and one at grade. The construction of other stations in Dadar will be at Sitladevi Temple in Mahim, Siddhi Vinayak in Dadar, and Worli.

With traffic diversions in place, motorists are likely to face increased congestion on already busy roads. The traffic diversion plan provided by the Mumbai traffic police will remain in effect until September this year. Integrated testing of trains is expected to begin soon on the Aarey Colony-Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) route, marking progress in the Metro Line 3 project.
