Mumbai Coastal road development work in full swing

After the Supreme Court vacated the stay over development work - construction of gardens and parking lots - on land reclaimed for the Coastal Road Project (CRP), the BMC decided to rev up all its engines to begin work immediately. The body has already completed over 62 per cent of the road work and almost 70 per cent of mining work for the second tunnel, sources said.

Work on the 10.58 km CRP, stretching from the Princes Street flyover to the southern end of Bandra-Worli Sea Link, began in 2018. After non-profits approached the apex court to stay the project citing climate change, only road work was allowed to be done. about 1.4 crore sq ft of land has been reclaimed for the project in total.

Around 75 per cent of the land will be used for landscaping and civic facilities like toilets, a track for jogging and cycling, a butterfly garden, a sea promenade, an open theatre, children's parks and playgrounds, police posts, bus stops, footpaths to cross the road, jetties. Three underground parking lots - near Mahalakshmi Temple and Haji Ali Dargah, Amar Sons Garden and Worli Dairy with a park on top - will also come up.
