Citizen’s Group Creates 3D Model that Show Mumbai’s Incomplete Development Plan

RoadMarch, a citizen group based in Mumbai has launched a movement to bring awareness and ask for the implementation of the city’s Development Plan (DP) 2034. 

This citizens-group has created a 3D model of the incomplete roads that were part of DP 1967 and 1991. It’s worth mentioning that Mumbai has a subpar track record with regard to sticking to its DP as the city has only implemented 33 per cent of the 1991 Development Plan and 18 per cent of the 1967 plan.

Civic agencies make reservations for public projects like gardens, roads, etc as part of the 20-year Development Plan. Given that most of the projects were still not completed from previous plans, they have since been carried forward to the 2034 DP. 

Founder of RoadMarch, Gopal Zhaveri said - “We did a study of the road reservations between Bandra and Dahisar and found that approximately 35% of it is yet to be implemented.”

He added that the models will be displayed in other parts of the city. “We are looking at displaying it again in South Mumbai by the end of this month and also to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation commissioner. We will continue this movement till Mumbaikars don’t get good public infrastructure.”

This initiative is expected to bring more awareness about traffic congestion in the city which leads to a massive loss of time. A 2019 report by TomTom revealed that citizens of Mumbai spend up to 65 per cent longer on roads during peak traffic hours.
