The Palm Beach Road is a 10-kilometre-long (6.2 mi) six-lane road and an up-market residential and commercial road that connects Vashi and Belapur through Sanpada, Nerul, running parallel to the Mumbai Harbour.
The road has witnessed accidents in the past, earning it the name killer road. 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 were added to reduce the speed of the vehicles on the road, but later removed.
The areas adjacent to the road are frequented by wetland birds. Illegal dumping of debris in the area is said to drive them away.
