While the BMC proposes to spend nearly Rs 1.4 crore to convert the longneglected beach into a magnet for visitors, the original Juhu experiment had not been welcomed by all and many had expressed light pollution concerns.
There were voices against the “gaudy” lighting at Juhu beach and some people had raised health fears, particularly about the effect on vision.
The work period for the revamp of Mahim beach would be six months, excluding the rains. A six-month defect liability period will cover the lighting. The contractor will be penalised 1% of the cost for delay.
