Mumbai's popular Flamingo watching site to remain closed for the next seven years

Thane’s Sewri Creek will be closed for the visitors as the construction of Mumbai Trans Harbour Link begins


Bird Lovers who plan to come and watch the migratory flamingos in Thane’s Sewri Creek will be disappointed with this news. As per the reports and announcements, this area will be beyond the reach of visitors for almost seven years.

The development of a 22-kilometer long Mumbai-Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) will be started soon and the location has been barricaded for construction for the same. As per the proposed plan, MTHL will join Mumbai and Jawaharlal Nehru Port in Navi Mumbai.

Over the last six years, the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) used to organise a festival to watch the migratory flamingos, for the next seven years, this would be affected as the construction process will be carried out at this place. However, authorities confirm that after the construction of the Trans-Harbour Link, the place will be open once again for visitors to watch the migrating birds.
