Bombay High Court lifts ban; MMRC to continue construction of Metro 3 Line at night

Bombay High Court had earlier put a ban on the construction of Metro Line 3 at night


After months, Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) on Friday was granted permission to work for Colaba-Bandra-Seepz (Metro 3) line round the clock. Earlier, Bombay High Court put a constraint regarding the same, restricting the construction work in the night time due to noise complaints.

In order to complete Metro 3 line construction in time, MMRC had been working 24 hours a day. However, it was troubling for residents in the Colaba and Churchgate area. Robin Jaisinghani, a south Mumbai resident, went to the High Court, appealing to stop the metro construction at night.

The petition claimed ₹10,000 per month for each family member who was disturbed because of the noise. The high court, then, directed the MMRC to stop the construction at night. With the pressure to complete metro construction in time, MMRC had been demanding to lift the ban. 

When approached by Mumbai Live after the judgement, Jaisinghani said that although the high court has lifted the ban, MMRC shall obey the noise pollution rules. However, he further said that he has not read the court order and shall speak after reading the same.
