Maharashtra’s first marina coming up in Belapur

The environment department of Maharashtra has given clearance to the construction of a marina at Belapur in Navi Mumbai. This will be the first in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the one planned at Gateway of India was opposed by the Western Naval Command for being a threat to its base.

“Another marina was planned between Gateway of India and Apollo Bunder, but it never took off,” it said and added: “The City Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) planned to build its own marina at Belapur in 2011-12.”

The land for the project is being developed by CIDCO and Maharashtra Maritime Board (MMB), who have entrusted a private firm, SHO Marina, with its implementation, said the report.
