Metro III car shed at Aarey stayed: Fadnavis

MUMBAI: Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis clarified in the legislative council on Wednesday that the plan for the Metro III car shed at Aarey Colony had been stayed. He said a committee had been formed to suggest another location for the car shed.

Fadnavis was replying to starred questions by Prakash Binsale (Nationalist Congress Party). Binsale said various organizations had opposed the cutting of trees for the car shed as it will affect the green lungs of the city.

"The city is already losing its green space. What is the government doing to conserve green zones?" asked Binsale.

Fadnavis said that a decision will be taken only after the committee's recommendations are received.

"People also do not want trees to be cut," he said.

Bhai Jagtap (Congress) pointed out that the government should consider the people's outrage taking into consideration the survival rate of transplanted trees. Kapil Patil (Lok Bharati) suggested that the government should consider other options for the car shed, like the Mahalaxmi race course, Mazagon Docks or Mumbai Port Trust land.

Of 2,298 trees the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority has proposed to transplant 2,044 and hack 254 to make way for the car shed. The proposal has been pending with the civic Tree Authority Committee after being opposed by corpoartors and committee members. The committee is headed by the municipal commissioner Sitaram Kunte.

Fadnavis said, "The Tree Authority has suggested transplanting 800 trees at the same place as the survival rate of transplanted trees is 90-95% in the same soil."

Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray had last month visited the picnic spot and said the Metro III project should be scrapped if it adversely affected the environment. Along with civic groups, the Congress, NCP and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena have voiced opposition to any construction inside the green lung.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had organized a protest rally against the car shed. III,Devendra Fadnavis
