The Mumbai Police has plans in place for the huge Ganesh Visarjan processions on September 5, 2017. It will be separating the ways into three parts: one for the march, the other for those recurring from involvement points, and routes for regular traffic. Follow the police on Twitter to get detailed maps and informs on traffic routes and diversions. You’ll find the slowest moving parades starting in the middle of the morning and going on until late and night, but the Visarjan themself happens in the morning next day. 

Roads will be crowded of traffic or closed to traffic, so take the local trains wherever possible. It is best to reach Grant Road station former in the central of the day and move onwards to Girgaum Chowpatty along Marine Drive. It will be crowded by then, so expect slow movement with hundreds of thousands of other followers and spectactors.
