Work underway near Marol Maroshi road

The proposed Metro III car shed near Aarey Milk Colony is once again in the news. A month after a green activist spotted work in progress at the proposed depot site in August – following which MNS and Shiv Sena workers put an end to all construction work – another activist has reported that a stretch of lane near Marol Maroshi road is being dug up to allegedly build a boundary.

Aarey Colony remains a 'no construction' area under the National Green Tribunal's (NGT) orders, but it seems the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) has already starting work on the site for a car shed. A local resident said, "The digging work has been on for the last few days." Despite many attempts, MMRC officials remained unavailable for comment.
