Footpaths damaged in New Panvel irk residents.


When Cidco is all set to take charge of more areas of Raigad district for infrastructure developments, New Panvel offers some crucial problems to be solved immediately.

New Panvel, an important area developed under CIDCO, is an example for its ill maintenance. Footpaths are damaged, destroyed, and remain ruined in many areas of New Panvel. Some important roads are also suffering due to this negligence. Most of these footpaths are located in residential and commercial area. These foot paths are destroyed due to different reasons such as pipe installations, hawkers, garbage dubbings and opened drainage canals.

Hawkers have played a crucial role in damaging the footpaths and making it filthy. Many residents found it easy to throw waste in footpaths, as no one will question them. Drainage canals passing under footpaths and roads have become another problem, as many of them found open in residential areas. CIDCO has closed all openings of canals, but are damaged and ill maintained by the authorities.

Residents are not comfortable with these conditions of footpaths, which triggers many other problems in the Locality.  Major problems are spotted in sector-8, near to St. George school and New Panvel lake, sector-19, largely infected by hawkers and railway station. Many of damaged footpaths are located near to the railway station, which makes the commuters walk on roads. This creates traffic congestions in junctions near to railway station. Especially in Peak hours of evening, it is reflected in the roads of New Panvel.

It is for sure that CIDCO has played a significant role in developments of Navi Mumbai to attract public towards the area. But maintenance of such developments remains a crucial question. New Panvel has developed for a greater level in past years and is offering better infrastructure than Old Panvel, which happened due to the involvements of CIDCO. Important flyovers and bridges are built to connect it with other parts of the state.

Raju P.J., a resident of New Panvel, said “if you clean and maintain the footpaths of New Panvel, 50% of traffic problems can be solved. Footpaths are used for garbage dubbing these days. Official should take steps to maintain the area.”

Sagar, a resident of Panvel, said “New Panvel is becoming next Panvel, due to its filthiest conditions on footpaths even in the heart of the town. Earlier it was isolated problems, but it has affected the whole area of New Panvel.”

CIDCO is responsible for reconstructing and cleaning the footpaths of the area, as New Panvel come under their jurisdiction. CIDCO PRO, Mohan Ninave, said “we will surely look into the issue and take actions to avoid such problems later. Public and residents should take a check on who are destroying and throwing garbage in footpaths.
