'Saplings will replace trees cut for Metro 3', says MMRC MD Ashwini Bhide
| Wednesday | 11th September, 2019
As the war over the Metro car depot at Aarey Milk Colony wages on, city tree huggers have something to smile about: The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) will replace each tree cut to make way for the Colaba-Bandra-Seepz Metro line 3.
That's over 3,000 trees axed along the 32.5 km-long stretch to start work on the metro line.
"We will restore the trees cut for this project," said Ashwini Bhide, Managing Director, MMRC.
This is an important decision that could impact the 2,700 trees expected to be cleared in Aarey Milk Colony for the Metro-3 depot.
It is already being used for Metro work for the past one year and shall be used for one more."
