While the MMRDA along with the Anil Ambani consortium’s Versova-Ghatkopar metro route may solve traffic issues of the city, at present its construction has become dangerous for the school going children of Divine Child High School for whom crossing the road has become difficult endangering their lives. There is no traffic police in the area giving way to a huge possibility of mishap. The ambitious Versova-Ghatkoper metro rail project is an 11.7 km long railway. The principal of the school stated that the area has become chaotic with construction work on one side and the other being illegally flanked over by hawkers making it all the more difficult for school children to cross over. He also informed that the Parents Teacher Association has given a written complaint to MMRDA, MCGM and the traffic department. Even parents expressed distress in the matter. We also spoke with a senior police inspector of the area’s traffic department who in response stated that it the school’s responsibility to appoint a private guard for its students to help them cross roads.
