It provides access to many important highways of the state of São Paulo, including the Anchieta Highway and the Imigrantes Highway via the Bandeirantes Avenue, the Raposo Tavares Highway and the Régis Bittencourt Highway via the Francisco Morato Avenue, and to the Castelo Branco highway via the Cebolão, a complex of accesses linking Marginal Pinheiros, Marginal Tietê and the aforementioned highway. There are several bridges connecting each side of the river, such as the Octavio Frias de Oliveira bridge. Even though there are seven lanes in each side of the Marginal Pinheiros, in which 5 lanes are express to up 90km/h and a local one with 3 lanes to up 60km/h. It is still very common for traffic congestion to take place there. A CPTM Train line runs along both the river and the road.
