The Breach Candy Welfare Group (BCWG) has requested to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to stall the destruction of popular ‘Tata Garden’ which is run by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). 

In the letter written under the label of BCWG, the residents of Breach Candy area in South Mumbai have stated that the construction of the Tata Garden should stop. The garden has more than 300 trees in the premises and along with the road. 

The Tata Garden is being done away with keeping in the mind the construction of the coastal road. According to Times of India, the walkers and joggers from the area have also expressed their concern over the destruction of the Tata Garden for coastal road. 

This garden has been a natural habitat for several species of birds along with other things for over three decades. The Breach Candy residents have written the letter to CM Uddhav Thackeray and Maharashtra Environment Minister Aaditya Thackeray. 

“We have suggested a feasible alternative for the entry and exit of the interchange and to use the vacant adjacent area called scandal point. This area has been under MSRDC for over a decade for the precise purpose of construction an interchange for the earlier Worli-Nariman Point sea link.” the letter read. 

The residents are trying to meet the Chief Minister and are hopeful that their suggestion will be heard. The breach candy residents stated that by making minor realignment of the entry and exit of the interchange will save a large green cover in the area. 

The BMC officials informed that they have tried to minimise the green cover loss and asked the contractor to reduce the number of trees that will be affected by the project. 

“We also plan to extend Tata Garden towards the sea after taking over a portion of the garden on Bhulabhai Desai Road,” the official said.
