Opposition from environmentalists as well as residents and various problems during execution of Coastal Road between Bandra and Versova is making the state government revive its Versova-Bandra Sea Link project despite having scrapped the entire sea link project on Mumbai's Western Coast.

Therefore, there is a possibility of a Coastal Road that snakes from South Mumbai to Kandivli — completely skipping the Bandra-Versova section.
