Mumbai: BMC to spend INR 8.37 crore to beautify "these" 6 open spaces

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is set to beautify six open spaces in Mumbai. On the project, the civic body will spend around INR 8.37 crore.

The highest amount of INR 4.88 crore will be spent on Vilasrao Deshmukh Udyan, followed by INR 2.42 crore on Gopinath Munde Udyan. Both of them are located in Kandivali

Other gardens that will undergo the beautification work include Jhula Maidan in Byculla, Mahim's Rama Gavandi Udyan, Raghunath Chavan Udyan and Ashok Pisal Udyan in Sion Pratiksha Nagar.

The municipal corporation, under this project, will construct pathways, security cabins, boundary walls and install open-air gym equipment. They will also plant trees and conduct soil filling in the grounds, amongst others. 

There are over 1,000 open spaces in Mumbai, and the civic body is getting requests from corporators to beautify these open spaces amid the approaching elections. Last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, hardly any beautification work was done.

Meanwhile, BMC is planning to repair 808 Mumbai roads and is likely to finalise the bids worth INR 2,200 crores by the end of this month. In other developments, the MMRDA is looking to make travel easy between between Mumbai and Thane by extending the Freeway.
