Acting on the directives of the Bombay High Court, the MHADA officials have now begun the task of barricading parts of roads around the dilapidated Esplanade Mansion. It had, last week, barricaded the footpath that runs beneath the building to ensure safety of the pedestrians.
The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority officials held a meeting with the Traffic Police department and the civic officials on Tuesday and decided to cordon off portions of M G Road, A S D'mello Road and David Sassoon Library Marg.
"We will cordon off 15 feet from the Esplanade Mansion on M G Road and A S D'mello road, and 10 feet from the building on David Sassoon Library Marg. We will not stop traffic and there will be enough space for two lanes for vehicles," said a MHADA official.
