Mumbai Coastal Road Project

Mumbai Coastal Road Project
Mumbai is one of the densest city where the ever-increasing traffic have made the city to think on the private car and vehicle on the road. The city has seen growth in both public and private transportation systems where the public system has to increase more than the private system but in the private system even increasing a single percentage will have a vast effect on the traffic.

The coastal road project is a target for the private transportation system where it will only increase the private cars on the road and increase the flow. Here we are not going to talk only the cons but this is the points which are to be seen for a project which is this vast and targeted to a large population. The coastal road project was proposed in the year 2015.
The coastal road project can be stated as:
An 8 Lane Expressway, 12000 crore cost, Connecting Marine Line to Kandivali.
The project was also opposed by the environmentalist because the project will have vast reclamation of land and then the bridge construction on the sea. The project was on ult for many years and now we can see the work has started. The project which was on hold stated in this pandemic situation which was easy to start and do on the fast track. 

Now we will see the Google Maps which will help us understand the project progress.

This picture is from Worli, where we can see the work of reclamation is almost completed here and will connect to the Bandra-Worli Sealink in the North which can be seen in the next picture.

In this picture, we can see that the Bandra Worli Sealink was already made such that the road can be connected to the future new coastal road.
Many places have seen mangrove cutting and coastal trees such as coconut tree cut down for the way.
All this shows that the project is in full progress and was estimated to be completed in the year 2022 but this might change to the year 2023.

Timber Buildings !?

Timber Buildings !?  Why do we need a timber building? Yes, timber buildings. As on earth human population is on an exponential rise, many and many people are trying to get home in a city where they have easy excess for the workplace for their own living. In the near future, as the population gets more concentrated in cities more and more structures I mean Tall Structures need to be built. Loading Bearing and Comparison So now architects and builders have opted for old Technic of using timber as a building material eliminating concrete and steel. Yes, it is very hard to find this amount of trees but not impossible. It can be grown and regrown as needed. Many projects have been in progress of this idea and it reduces about 75% of carbon emission as compared to concrete and steel structure. Using timber coming directly from the forest doesn't have the appropriate strength required for a high rise building. So designers came up with the new idea of CLT
