To mitigate the inconvenience caused by these closures, the Mumbai Police have suggested alternate routes for commuters. These include major roads like the Eastern Express Highway, Western Express Highway, Andheri-Kurla Road, Saki Vihar Road, MIDC Central Road, Santacruz Chembur Link Road (SCLR), Sion-Bandra Link Road, and Jogeshwari Vikroli Link Road (JVLR). Citizens and motorists are urged to plan their journeys accordingly and utilise these alternative routes to reach their destinations during the specified hours.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Mumbai is part of his election campaign strategy for the Lok Sabha elections in 2024. He is scheduled to address two rallies and conduct a roadshow on May 15 and 17 in the city. Mumbai, with its 13 constituencies including areas like Mumbai North, Mumbai South, Thane, Nashik, Palghar, and Bhiwandi, will go to the polls on May 20, 2024, marking the final phase of voting in the Lok Sabha elections.
