Mumbai's Bandra-BKC skywalk to be restored through a 'raze & rebuild' project

MMRDA established the skywalk and BMC took over the maintenance responsibilities in 2015.

In view of the structural issues identified in Mumbai's first skywalk in Bandra, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation will break-down and rebuild a part of it. As per reports, the traffic on the route connecting the station road to Bandra Kurla Complex will be hampered due to the slated interventions. Reportedly, the skywalk links SV Road in Bandra (West) to BKC junction and the part between the eastern side of Bandra station and Western Express Highway will be rebuilt now.

Project to be completed within a period of 18 months

Stepping ahead with the project, BMC has already requested proposals for the construction work. Reportedly, BMC expects that the work will be finished within a period of 18 months. Further, it has been reported that there is a marginal difference between the costs of repair and rebuilding, and therefore, the civic body has chosen the reconstruction method. Notably, Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) established the skywalk and BMC took over the maintenance responsibilities in 2015.

In 2019, a part of the skywalk set up in Bandra (East) fell down and a woman was injured during the accident. Taking quick cognisance of the matters, an assessment was conducted to gauge the state of the different skywalks. After that, the civic body was deliberating upon the reconstruction of the SV Road facility but the plans got delayed due to pandemic propelled lockdown.

23 more skywalks to be repaired or reconstructed

Further, reports state that around 23 more skywalks will be repaired or reconstructed. The interventions will be recommended by Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute (VJTI), which was been roped in by the BMC after the collapse of the Himalaya bridge right outside Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus in March 201.

Given the deteriorated state of the Bandra skywalk, it would be the first to witness reconstruction interventions. As per reports, parties interested to take up the works of the scheme can submit their proposals by 13 September. Once the facility is restored, traffic situation will be improved in the area.
