THE Mumbai Heritage Conservation Committee (MHCC) has allowed the roads and traffic department of BMC to plant ‘Bougainvillea’ flowers instead of railings on the central divider of the Marine Drive to improve public safety.
The heritage panel’s decision comes after the roads and traffic department filed a review application to reconsider the issue of installation of railings along the central divider and the footpath over the stretch from Tambe Chowk to Yoga Centre.
