MUM­BAI: There will no longer be a 9.15-me­tre-wide road cut­ting across three res­i­den­tial build­ings at Pali Hill in Ban­dra; the pro­posed road has been deleted from the city’s draft de­vel­op­ment plan (DP) 2034, which the Bri­han­mum­bai Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (BMC) has re­vised and re­leased as phase 2.

The re­vi­sion fol­lows a road sur­vey and spec­i­fies whether pro­posed roads are to be deleted from or re­tained in the draft. Cit­i­zens were up in arms against pro­posed roads that would have cut across their build­ings and re­li­gious struc­tures, and Pali Hill res­i­dents led a protest against the plan. Fol­low­ing this, most of the pro­posed roads at Pali Hill now stand deleted or re-aligned.

Sim­i­larly, a 9.15-me­ter-wide road pro­posed at Mt Mary Con­vent School in Ban­dra has also been deleted from the re­vised draft, which was sub­mit­ted in the group lead­ers meet­ing at the BMC late on Tues­day.

The ward-wise draft will be made avail­able on the BMC’s web­site on Jan­uary 7.
