Green clearance to Mumbai Trans Harbour Link

The Centre issued a fresh coastal regulation zone (CRZ) clearance to the ambitious 22-km Mumbai Trans Harbour Link project worth Rs.11,370 crore. The decision follows a National Green Tribunal´s (NGT) October order that had set aside the Environment Ministry´s prior coastal clear-¡ance of 2013 to the project.

Government plans to issue a tender in March and complete the crucial link by 2019. ´In compliance of the directions of NGT, the proposal ´Mumbai Trans Harbour Link´ by MMRDA was considered by the Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) in the ministry. Based on the recommendations of EAC, the Environment Ministry hereby accords CRZ clearance to the project,´ the ministry said in a letter written to MMRDA.
