Juhu Beach Of Mumbai Planned For A Posh Makeover Soon

August 2, 2017

5m high walls, bollards to restrict vehicles, ramps and steps with railings, welcome signs and a few lights will be available over each of its eight access points to the beach.
In the first phase of the project faced opposition from some citizens and activists, Juhu residents said they welcome the beautification work.
While activists were unhappy with the plan to set up multi-coloured lights on the beach, they appreciated the BMC’s effort to make the beach more accessible.
Zahida Banatwala of the Juhu Citizens’ Welfare Group (JCWG) said, “Every monsoon, the access points get damaged. So, this is a good move, but the BMC is still doing a shoddy job of cleaning the beach.”
Smita Chakravarty of the NGO, Juhu-Soul of the City, told HT, “Apart from the redevelopment, we also need a play area for children on the beach.”
“The first phase of the project included themed-lighting and redevelopment of the central Chowpatty. This is a one of its kind lighting and won’t hamper the natural feel of the beach,” said by BJP legislator Ameet Satam. Officials said the second phase will be completed by the end of August and the themed-lighting will be inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi.
