MMRDA moves to control dust at Mandale metro depot site

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is carrying out several measures to mitigate the dust problem at the construction site of the Mandale depot of Mumbai Metro in Mankhurd. The depot is an integral part of the 23.64-km Mumbai Metro Line 2B between D N Nagar and Mandale, which would be the largest metro depot in Mumbai.

The preventive measures include sprinkling water at the site to control the dust, using machinery and equipment which are designed to minimise air pollution, covering vehicles carrying loose excavated material with tarpaulin, stacking the excavated material so as to minimise dust emission, disposing of all excavated materials at designated places on a regular basis, etc.

Furthermore, wheels of outbound vehicles from the site are cleaned so that soil from the site is not carried to outer roads. A specially designed mechanism at batching plants automatically cleans the wheels of outbound vehicles.

Air quality (AAQ) and Noise quality (NQ) levels within the area of this depot were recorded under the Central Pollution Control Board standards.

The MMRDA is the project implementing authority. S V R Srinivas, the MMRDA Commissioner, said that the authority is taking utmost care during the construction of the Mandale depot. “The aim is to complete the project on time and it is planned to expedite the structural works,” he said.
