The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has drafted a new master plan to improve basic amenities across Mumbai's western suburbs, in a structural format. This graded civic development plan will be targeting the residential MHADA pockets of Gorai, Charkop and Borivli areas in the city. As per reports, the BMC will focus on essential water supply and the condition of roads among other plans in the initial phase of the overall facelift.
Gorai Beach to turn into a tourism hub, soon!
The BMC officials have traced a severe water crisis in the MHADA layouts of Mumbai's western suburbs. The shortage has been linked to the progressive rise in the population in this region. The expanding residential load in this region has also increased the burden on the roads, resulting in tear and damage.
The Additional Municipal Commissioner informed that the BMC's new development programme focuses on these issues. A sector-wise priority plan is in order, added reports, where different facets of development are being actively pursued.
The scheme also visions to turn Gorai Beach into a tourism hub for which, the entire coastal stretch has been assigned under the care of the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC). The BMC is also mulling over the proposal of constructing a bridge over Gorai Creek, added the AMC, to enhance the overall commute connectivity. Presently, the roadway ends near Gorai Jetty.
MHADA permission awaited
A specific action order has been issued for the area falling between Sector 3 to 9 in Charkop and Gorai areas. The region falls under the R/C wards of the BMC but belongs to MHADA, detailed civic officials. As such, the scheme to set up two water tanks here is currently awaiting the official MHADA permission, read reports.
Once the plan is given a green flag by the Development Authority, the BMC will begin construction of 15x10 meter couple tankers in the region. Plans suggest that 5 more such units in sectors 3 to 7 will be also be stationed, in the forthcoming phases.
