Praveen Pardeshi, Municipal Commissioner, Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, has guided the body towards victory with the Supreme Court ruling in the favour of Mumbai’s sought after Rs.140 billion coastal road project. In a bid to decongest traffic and provide ease of access between the northern and southern parts of the city, the project was put on the map to reduce travel time considerably. Pardeshi led the team closer to making the road a reality as the apex court gave its approval to reclaim the land meant for construction of the eight-lane 29.2 km-long project. On completion, it is projected to be used by around 130,000 vehicles per day and will reduce the 120-minute ride between South Mumbai and western suburbs to 40 minutes. Pardeshi has reaffirmed the corporation’s position in building a better and more sustainable Mumbai, and we wish him success for all his undertakings.
