Khargher: Metro Construction causing disturbances.


Kharghar residents are facing some crucial problems with traffic and ecological areas, as the construction of Metro Rail Projects are in speedy phase. The ambitious project of Metro Rail in Navi Mumbai is affecting the daily life of Residents by creating traffic congestions and pollution. Important roads of Kharghar are digging for those works. Cutting down trees are becoming a huge problem for the growing node of the Navi Mumbai City.

Madhav Gaikwad, a social worker in Kharghar, says “We are glad due to works of Metro are going fast, but it is vital for city officials to make sure that the construction of these projects are not giving any problems for its residents. As for now, traffic in Sec- 12, Sec- 19 is huge due to construction of pillars in the middle of the road.”

Numerous Trees are cut down in many parts of Kharghar for these construction purposes. Environmentalists raising their voice against cutting trees, as this could affect our nature adversely.

Pritam Bhusare, a resident of Kharghar, said “Trees cutting down will surely lead to have a tremendous impact over our ecology. It will affect the natural habitats of animals in the surrounding area.

Metro construction also caused pollution and dust related problems for the residents. Senior citizens found it difficult to pass the roads due to heavy pollution and dust. It has badly affected the business centre and shops of the areas. Already Kharghar has faced many transportation problems due to ill managed rickshaws and less number of buses. The construction problems have accelerated the traffic and transportation problems in the so called developed node of Navi Mumbai.

Pratip Kumar, a Taxi driver, says “Roads are messed up and thus affecting my daily life. Our life depends on these roads, but these traffics are affecting us badly.

Frankee Chacko, a Christian Priest, said “transportation is a vital problem of Kharghar, metro works are increasing those problems. Now city officials should take suitable measures to control this traffic.”

Residents feel very bad about cutting trees, which could affect the ecological balances of the society. “Policy for sustainable development is important for the city, as many developmental constructions led to the destruction of social balances by destroying natural resources. The method of sustainable developments should be adopted to save our nature simultaneously with modern developments” said Shailesh Kotkar, a city based social worker.
