Double disasters cause major traffic jams at JJ, Gandhi Nagar flyovers

Commuters faced a harrowing time on Friday morning when two separate incidents on the Gandhi Nagar and JJ flyovers caused massive traffic snarls. 

    At 11 am, the fuel tanker of a BEST bus developed a leak due to which oil spilled over the road, slowing down traffic upto Lalbaug flyover for almost two hours. "The oil tank of the bus on route number 19 was hit by a metallic object. Fire brigade officials were called to throw sand and mud on the oil spill. The bus was moved out within 20 minutes," said a BEST official. 
    The situation was far worse on the flyover at Gandhi Nagar junction, when a cement mixer turned turtle at about 12.30, forcing the flyover to be closed to traffic for about six hours till the cement was cleared from the road. Bhaskar Gaikwad, senior police inspector, Ghatkopar traffic police station said, "The mixer was removed at 7 pm and vehicles were allowed on the flyover by 7.45 pm.
