BMC to set up more gardens under city’s 23 flyovers

Lush green parks could soon replace the dusty parking lots under many of the city’s flyovers

Following the success of the garden under Matunga's Tulpule Flyover, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has identified 23 more flyovers for the initiative. As a result, lush green parks are likely to soon replace the dusty parking lots under many of city's flyovers.

The beautification under the flyovers will solve the issues of illegal parking under the space below flyovers. According to a civic official, the tender process regarding development of the gardens in the space below the flyovers will be starting soon.

Matunga's 'under-flyover garden' was the first of its kind endeavor in the city by the BMC. The response to it has been tremendous, with around 300 locals utilising the space for their morning and evening walks daily on the stretch from Maheshwari Udyan to Jain Mandir.

The flyovers to be beautified with gardens...
In South Bombay – J.J. Flyover, Keshavsut Flyover (near Dadar station), Hindmata Flyover, Elphinstone Flyover and Worli Bridge (next to Nehru Center)

In the Western Suburbs – Kalanagar Flyover, Kherwadi Flyover, Gokhale Bridge (Andheri West), Balasaheb Thackeray Bridge (Jogeshwari), Mrinal Gore Bridge, Veer Savarkar Bridge, both the Skywalk and Anandnagar Bridge (outside Dahisar station)

In the Central Suburbs – Kurla Bridge, Buddha Colony Bridge, Mankhurd T Junction bridge, Govandi Bridge, Vasinaka Bridge, Amar Mahal Junction Bridge.
