And after the proposal of sacrificing thousands of trees in the name of Inter Modal Station in Ajni campus, the civic body of the city has now proposed a new road from Empress Mill to Bajaria. As per information, about 365 trees will be cut in the middle of this proposed road.
Earlier, there was a proposal to cut down 380 trees for this road but after the recent hearing, it was demanded to save 65 trees out of 365.Out of 65,there are some Ashoka trees while some of them were not coming in the middle of the road. However, NMC tree protection authority has approved to save 15 trees. At present the NMC has commenced the tree felling work. This place is under the possession of Maharashtra State Textile Corporation. They will hand over after constructing 15 metre wide and 500 metre long road to NMC. A road about 15 meters wide and 650 meters long has been proposed from Empress Mill to Bajaria. It has been claimed that local people will be benefited from this road.
