How long before both coastal stretch and sea link go kaput?

If has to be shelved, please shelve it before more of it is built. Last thing we need is half built crap along the coast.

Every major coastal highway infrastructure project sees this. Study the history of reclamation, feed highways and under-construction pictures of the Kansai airport (Osaka, Japan) and others. During high tides and low tides. Before and after heavy rains.

The project will look confusing and an eye-sore for some time (many parts of the Mumbai coastline have long had a messy look). Then it will look much better. When 80% or more complete, the locals will wonder why wasn't this done 20 or 40 years ago:

Believe me, I know, I am well aware of it...not against the project. However, considering this is India, IF the project gets stopped or delayed or shelved with construction already under way, it is going to look ugly.

I think it is better to get everyone and courts into confidence before going ahead...particularly whatever environmental issues that could be thrown up.

That "getting everyone in confidence" and environmental etc review process is now long over. The project wasn't dreamed few months ago. It has already gone through a lot of debate. That video is from 2017. The first Mumbai coastal road proposal along this line came up in the 1960s.

Various versions followed in almost every decade and their impact on public convenience, public spaces such as gardens, beach trails and walkways, effect on accidents, traffic flow, ambulance, fire services, saved lives, pollution, crime, public health, views, property prices, ecology, birds, frogs, plants, shrubs, rocks, environment, fishermen, boats, tides and more has already been through several reviews and versions.

It is time to cooperate, cheer the workers and engineers, offer them a cup of chai if you see them, and encourage them to finish this project.

"take everyone into confidence"..... That's not possible, because many people who are opposing these kind of infrastructure projects have wasted interests, many of those are political interests, they won't satle for anything, believe me I have wasted so much time in arguing with these kinds of environmentalists and other self proclaimed activitists, when they run out of logical reasoning, they will label you as uneducated and run away like a coward......There are some people with genuine concerns but they are so egoistic that they consider anyone opposing them as illiterates, they are those intellectual (people who are educated beyond their intelligence &#128514 types

So this is nothing but a waste of time...... The only right thing to do is allow a Democratically elected government to do their job for 5 straight years without any interruption (at least in the infrastructure department), and judiciary should also do the same, nobody is above people's mandate

What happened to the hearing on June 17? No news on it.

We have grown into an country wide epidemic in this age, every person thinks he is smarter than others. The government gets experts too, but no one cares about their opinions.

Someone has filed a pro-Coastal Road plea in the HC.

Quote:
Meanwhile, an intervention application in support of the coastal road project was filed by lawyer Rohini Amin, who travels to South Mumbai from Borivali daily stated that on some days it takes up to three hours to travel the distance and the coastal road project was essential for the city because its public transport system had reached a saturation point.

Amen. Majority public understands the need of these projects but isn't highlighted by any prestigeous news media. About time those opposers got baambu up their buttholes.

The '"coastal road will look ugly" gang should understand that Mumbai is a ugly city with its large slums and haphazard infra development that happened with political support over the years. At least, the coastal road will enhance the quality of Mumbaikar's life by saving time and reducing pollution.
The people who are opposing it should first demolish the ugly apartments (with pencil like structures) that they inhabit, if aesthetics is their prime concern.
The high courts & supreme court are a joke. Instead of clearing the large pile of cases that have accumulated over the years, they are entertaining these jokers who are filing frivolous PILs.

The opposition is by three different parties, the sunset gang who are partly funding the opposition on fear of losing the serenity, who also fear subsequent development on the reclaimed land, thereby ending all views in the future, the opportunist who take this as an opportunity to further their name and cause (people like AJA architects or look at the sheer number of architects working in the opposition, this is one big advertisement for their businesses) or NGOs, and those politically motivated. Everyone knows this will be known as a politial project showcased for years to come. Its certainly worth acknowledging people who are still motivated to develop infrastructure in this city.

BMC is being run by SS right now, and this seems to be a project fully endorsed by the SS top brass!!! What surprises me is that these guys have so meekly capitulated to the caprice of the obstructionists (both political and opportunistic ones)...I would have expected a wee bit more earnestness on the part of these guys in ensuring that the opposition doesn't gain too much ground...

For once, I wouldn't mind if the SS unleashes its goons on them from time to time, and maybe even breaks a few skulls!!!

A guess is this is still being driven by the CMO, but they have let BMC run with the badge (after all SS would seek a trophy). BMC has engaged external management anyways, so there is very little BMC except for funding? We should thank!

AFAIK, CMO hasn't involved itself in this one bit...It is almost entirely being driven by the BMC...
