DRAIN-WIDENING IN BYCULLA

As part of the BMC’s pre-monsoon preparedness work, workers construct a nearly 1-km-long stormwater drain and widen two existing ones in Byculla (E). While the drain outside Byculla station will be widened before monsoon, work on the other two drains will be completed by next year, say civic officials. The BMC is taking up drain-widening, repair and construction work across the city in phases after the downpour on August 29, 2017, had inundated most parts of Mumbai and exposed the ineffective drainage network
