Andheri Subway will be BMC’s next monsoon project
The anti-flooding measures taken by the BMC brought much sought-after relief to the citizens. However, Andheri Subway was waterlogged several times, leading to closure of vehicular movement. To tackle the issue, the BMC has planned widening of drains at Andheri West but it will take almost two more years for people to get relief.
The civic body has undertaken work to widen Mogra nullah from SV Road to Veera Desai Road and divert it from the southside of a culvert on JP road to DN Nagar metro station. Another diversion work of the nullah will be at Veera Desai Road to Courtyard and RTO junctions till City Mall.
The estimated cost of the project, which is expected to be completed in 18 months, is around Rs 100 crore. Also, a pumping station is proposed to be constructed on Mogra nullah at the estimated cost of Rs 393 crore and the expected time of construction is 20 months.
