ganesh-naik-1Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik inspected Palm Beach Road and other important junctions of the city. Giving a personal visit to the important junctions of the city like the Palm Beach road, Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik got on foot and walked the roads to get a first hand information on the condition of these landmark locations of the city. The minister started his inspection of the road in front of white house and then headed towards Palm Beach road. He also visited the Turbhe naka and the bridge near D Y Patil University and in Turbhe. He was accompanied by MLA Sandeep Naik, Mayor Sagar Naik, NMMC Commissioner Bhaskar Wankhede and other NMMC officials. While crossing the Vashi flyover to head towards Palm Beach Road, Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik pointed out cracks on the bridge and spoke on the filth and garbage witnessed everywhere in the city. On Palm Beach road, the minister cracked down on the NMMC officials on the gardens built in front of the high towers. He ordered NMMC to not allow builders to carry out this work on their own whims and fancies and undertake the same work. Minister Ganesh Naik also said that the dividers on Palm Beach road were short in height which led to accidents. He suggested to increase the height of the dividers. He then paid a visit to the Nerul pond where once again dirt and filth was spread everywhere. His next stop were the bridges at Turbhe and near DY Patil University. Irked at NMMC’s failure to not allow vehicles to be parked under the bridges, he ordered for their immediate removal. At the Turbhe naka, he ordered RTO and NMMC to remove the hawkers sprawled over the footpaths. The foot-over-bridge here is not being used by pedestrians who generally jump the dividers to cross over. The minister ordered NMMC to increase the height of the divider here too so that the bridge serves its purpose. Speaking to the media, Thane Guardian Minister said that there were three main issues that he noticed during his visit. One of the unhygienic condition of the city and second encroachment. The third issue was the illegal parking under bridges. He urged to build lawns under the bridges to remove the vehicles parked here. When asked if it would be possible to remove the illegal parking of vehicles, the minister said that he was hopeful and has given a months time to PWD officials to remove the vehicles. Speaking on the gardens built by builders, the minister expressed shock that this was the first time that he saw such an unsystematic construction of gardens and ordered NMMC to form a policy on the same.
