The access road that leads to the pagoda and the beach will be cleared of encroachments in 15 days, making it easier to visit Gorai Beach. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will remove 324 huts, which cause a significant traffic jam for the tourist visiting the pagoda. These huts also blocked the entrance during the fire at Shree Complex CHS and Royal Palace Society.
“We are conducting a lottery system to provide rehabilitation to Mahatma Phule’s 324 huts obstructing the Gorai road,” Sandhya Nandedkar, assistant commissioner, R northward, stated. All of them, legal and illegal, will be destroyed in 15 days.
According to Nandedkar, tourists travelling to Gorai Pagoda will benefit from a wider road that will be attractive with the installation of street lights, attractive pavements, benches, and street furniture.
“Since all of the cabins had blue plastic sheets that didn’t look good, this will make a good impression. Likewise, the methodology street of two lodging social orders, which was impeded by the fire unit, will be opened. It is a Gorai section, and those going to the Gorai ocean side towards the pagoda will think that it is simple,” said Nandedkar.
According to a civic official from R northward, 324 huts were creating a significant bottleneck, and the road’s width was 45 feet; once these huts are removed, it will increase to 90 feet.
We have made the dwellers both legal and illegal. There is a BMC building on Pandit Mallarao Kulkarni Road, where all 140 legal families will be rehabilitated. “One hundred families have already been relocated,” the civic official stated.
The civic body will also paint the walls, make repairs to the footpaths and put stamp concrete in their place, and have street furniture while the work on lighting is done.
