Mumbai: ‪‪The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation‬'s plan to widen the roads in the Dadar Parsi Hindu Colony has been opposed by the Shiv Sena and the people residing there.

According to a report in The Indian Express, the civic body has proposed to widen around 80 roads less than 9 metre wide to 9 metre in the city.

The BMC officials said the roads department had summited a list of around 80 names to the Mumbai Heritage Conservation Committee for a no-objection certificate, as some roads and structures abutting them fall under the heritage precinct.

Meanwhile, The Mumbai Heritage Committee has expressed concern over cutting of trees for the project and sought a report from the roads department.

Reacting to the road-widening plan, local Sena corporator Amey Ghole has written to the Mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar and heritage committee and civic chief Ajoy Mehta.

He said the colony, known for its green cover, is an integral part of the city "If the roads are widened, it will not only reduce the playgrounds, recreational grounds but some of the trees may need to be cut. So, it will ruin the heritage character of the area,” he said.

Ghole has requested the mayor to convene a joint meeting of all stakeholders to scrap the proposal.

The Mancherji Edalji Joshi Colony Residents Association has also written to the civic chief and heritage committee, demanding the proposal be scrapped as it would ruin the greenery of the area.
