Palm Beach Marg is traversing through the western edge of Navi Mumbai developed to provide fast movement of intra city traffic. It is serving for inter-nodal traffic of Vashi, Sanpada, Nerul and Belapur.

Safety[edit]

The road has witnessed accidents in the past,[4][5] earning it the name killer road.[6] Speed Limit and safety signs have been put up along the road. Fences have been installed on both the sides of the road and the divider to prevent pedestrians from crossing. Three sets of rumblers have been added to reduce the speed of the vehicles on the road.

Environmental concerns[edit]

The areas adjacent to the road are frequented by wetland birds. Illegal dumping of debris in the area is said to drive them away.[7]
