Is the city ready for monsoons? 24.6.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
While heavy showers are yet to hit the city, several areas witnessed water-logging and long traffic jams after only moderate showers last week. The Brihanumbai Municipal Corporations (BMC)'s pre-monsoon preparations have already failed to inspire any confidence, raising doubts about how prepared Mumbai is for the rains to come. DNA takes a close look at the quality of the city's pre-monsoon preparations, such as crucial nullah de-silting and road repair works that the BMC is expected to carry out across the city, with a special focus on the measures in place at chronic flooding spots. Work on removal of encroachments for nullah widening being caught up in jurisdictional wrangles between agencies is also a cause of concern. During the first showers, the city witnessed water logging on the Jogeshwari-Vikroli Link Road at SEEPZ, exposing the hollow promises from agencies like the BMC that Mumbai would be free from water-logging this monsoon. Water-logging at SEEPZ was blamed on the metro car-shed debris ...
