Bandra Talao beautification consultants dismissed by BMC

Phase-II of the beautification project of Bandra Talao is no more in the hands of student consultants who came up with an idea of underwater glass tunnel in the talao. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to go ahead with the project on its own. The Garden Cell of the H/West (Santacruz, Khar, Bandra) is now in-charge for the beautification project of the Talao.

Along with scrapping the consultants, the civic body has also scrapped their idea of an under-water glass tunnel. The decision came soon after the Mumbai Heritage Conservation Committee (MHCC) suggested to improve the water quality of the Talao rather than giving importance to other fancy plans. The Afternoon D&C had reported in its June 3, 2017 issue about how the civic body is carrying out the de-silting of the Talao after more than 10 years. “It was important to focus on the water quality as it has degraded over the years due to sewerage leaks from the adjoining places. Plans of under-water tunnel is scrapped, instead, there will only be a glass-board walkway,” said an official from the heritage committee.

Two tracks will be constructed to complete the loop of the water body, of which, a glass-board walkway will be set-up on the north side of the Talao. Towards the southern side of the talao, a cantilever walkway will be put, in this way, visitors can have a complete stroll around the Talao. “Along with the walkways, additional aerators (device used to add oxygen to the water) will be equipped and peripheral lighting will also be there. The execution of the phase II of beautification project will take another year,” said Meenaksi Mane, an official from the Garden Cell.
