Recently Mumbai’s first waste-to-energy plant was inaugurated at Haji Ali by guardian minister Aaditya Thackeray. The plant is said to produce electricity from around 2000 kilograms of waste. The minister also performed Bhoomi puja for the construction of a viewing deck named ‘Darshak Gallery’, to be built on the stormwater drainage at Girgaon Tambe Chowk.
The deck will offer breathtaking views of the Arabian sea. Thackeray said that a similar audience gallery is being set up at Dadar too. Read on to know more.
Every new day the waste-to-energy park will generate around 250-300 units of power which the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will utilize for electrifying public parks. As said by BMC, the plant will assist in partial savings in municipal electricity expenses and will also save waste transportation costs.
A spectacular viewing deck will come up off the Arabian Sea at Girgaun Chowpatty and the authority is aiming to complete constructing it in four months. Aditya Thackeray said: “Bhumipujan was done today for the viewer gallery which is being built on the stormwater drainage at Girgaon Tambe Chowk. This viewer gallery (as shown in the resolution) will be completed in 4 months and open to all. A similar audience gallery is being set up at Dadar for the leisure of Mumbaikars.”
“The deck (as shown in the artist’s impression) will come up in 4 months and will be open as an urban space for all. A similar one is coming up in Dadar”, added Thakeray.
Great projects are on the way for Mumbai!
