The 83 Year Old Worli Sea-Face Walkway To Be Remade

As a part of the Rs. 2000 crore coastal road project, Bombay Municipal Corporation (BMC) has plans to remake the famous Worli sea-side walkway in South Mumbai. A bigger and better walkway is said to replace the current one by the end of 2022.

The walkway is a highlight of the city with thousands of locals using the space to walk, run, jog or just unwind near the sea every day.

Currently, the seafront walkway spreads over 2 km in length starting from Worli Dairy and extends till INS Trata, also leading to the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. The new walkway, in turn, will be about 4 km long and 20 meters wide. In all, there will be six interchanges. There are also plans to construct an underground parking lot nearby, a green patch between the walkway and coastal road, a bus bay for the Bus Rapid Transport System which will cover the entire stretch of the coastal road.

Chief Engineer Mohan D Machiwal of Mumbai's coastal road department ensures residents that their exercise schedules won't be deranged. The new walkway will be ready while the existing will be ongoing repair work.

BMC has already started its work by placing barricades around 300 meters of the walkway right opposite Worli Dairy.

Meanwhile, not all the locals are happy about this decision. The walkway has been there for so long that people are not ready for a change. Plus, the new walkway is said to be made 700 meters away from the original one. Although it can be reached through underpasses, the area can get flooded during heavy rains.

Certain changes on the coastal road will reduce traffic and ease transportation in the area, residents believe. However, according to them, there is no need for the walkway to go away.
