P D'Mello Road is a 6 km long arterial north-south access road in Mumbai. P D'Mello Road is the name of the 6km stretch between the south-end of the Eastern Freeway and the north-end of the Colaba Causeway. The road comes under Mumbai's B Ward.
The BMC began clearing slums in May 2007. The road was widened and the footpath was made narrower in an effort to keep the shanties from being rebuilt. The total cost for the widening was estimated to be 51 crore (US$8.3 million).
