The environmental dispute over the proposed Metro car shed in Aarey Colony rages on between activists and the Metro authorities, which had claimed in an official report that there was “no wildlife” at the site.
The verdant Aarey Colony was dotted with close to 150 cyclists early on Saturday morning. Converging at the spot from Andheri, Vikhroli to as far as Thane, they formed a chain protesting against the felling of 2,298 trees for the proposed Metro 3 car shed.
After months of mounting pressure from environmental activists and citizens, the BMC yesterday rejected the proposal to cut down 2,298 trees in Aarey Colony that were to make space for the car shed of the Metro line III (Colaba-Bandra-Seepz corridor).
