Mumbai’s Hanging Garden To Shut Down For 7 Years

As per the latest news, Mumbai’s iconic Hanging Garden will reportedly shut down for seven years due to a reconstruction project of the reservoir beneath the Malabar Hills, which belongs to the colonial era. 

It has also been reported that the re-construction will take almost seven years, involving a complete overhaul of the garden, which also means that there will be a lot of removal of trees, out of which 350 of them will be transplanted in the nearby areas. 

Since the residents have started protesting, the Guardian Minister and the local MLA MP have scheduled a meeting to discuss the issue. The reservoir is located at the highest point in the city and is responsible for distributing water in the South Mumbai region with the help of gravitational force. 

The idea of the INR 698 Crores project was first initiated in the 2017 audit, which revealed that the condition of the reservoir is deteriorating, and if the essential measures are not taken, then the entire structure will be at risk. 

As there have been notices of the removal of trees, the residents have become more aware of the impacts. 

The future of the 136-year-old Hanging Garden remains hung up as the city strives towards development while also preserving its natural habitat.
