- 11-4-15 – Erosion Protection: The Bandra Bandstand Promenade was built in 2000 and since the last 15 years it has been withstanding the onslaught of the heavy sea waves, continuously eroding the embankments. The Northern half of the Promenade was protected by Boulder Protection through the MP / MLA funds and the work carried out in November 2008 by PWD (Harbour branch) and hence the embankments are safe today. However, the erosion of the Southern half of the Promenade could not be saved by using the Boulder protection as the height between the promenade and the seabed was small and also as the aesthetics of the place would have been ruined. BBRT with the assistance of the renowned architect Mr P.K. Das, proposed a step like modern embankment. As per directions and help of the then MP Ms Priya Dutt, we approached the Maharashtra Maritime Board who, after various discussions, agreed to carry out the project themselves and sanctioned Rs two Crores for the same.
The project however got stalled until MLA Shree Ashish Shelar cleared various issues and put the project back on track. The Bhoomi Pujan for the project was held on 11/4/15 and the work started. The project has made considerable head way and major portion of the work is expected to be completed before the monsoons. – Link to Photos
