Preface This is the third PortLands conference organised by IMC Chamber of Commerce and Industry and APLI Mumbai. It gives us great pleasure to share the progress that is being made on the Regeneration of Mumbai’s #PortLands. The IMC-APLI Mumbai PortLands Conferences have provided a platform for public debate and discussion on this issue. The conference in 2014 presented a Citizens’ Vision Plan for 14 neighbourhoods. The 2016 Conference proposed concrete measures to integrate PortLands with the city, modernize Sassoon Dock, promote Tourism Infrastructure through a Marina and Cruise Terminal, and create Passenger Water Transport for North South and Trans Harbour connectivity. We are gratified that the new projects in hand by the Mumbai Port Trust are in keeping with the ideas and suggestions we have made since 2014, to transform the non-operational areas of the PortLands and create the open spaces, public infrastructure and social amenities that our city so desperately needs. This report includes details of our suggestions since 2014 which are being translated into reality. In the 2018 PortLands Conference our focus has been on urgent and tangible next steps for establishing a Maritime Museum, implementing modernisation plans for Sassoon Dock and commissioning Passenger Water Transport services. The Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the Mumbai Port Trust shared their plans and vision for the several new projects in the PortLands and assured us that the new master plan and the new land policy would soon be announced. A lot of plans have been put in place over the last 2 years. However the PortLands are awaiting regeneration since at least 2002, if not 1990. Advocacy groups strive to create compelling motivation for action by all stake holders for the benefit of the city. We need the state and central governments, all the civic authorities, statutory bodies, service providers and utilities, to recognise that this is Mumbai’s best chance to create thousands of jobs and revitalise our city. It is thus necessary now to urge the authorities to initiate policy plans and implement them without delay, for the benefit of the city. This report of the IMC-APLI Mumbai conference held on 28 Apr 2018, is a means to that end.

Foreword

Mumbai city has been an enigma to most of us. The more we delve into the city, the less we know. The Eastern waterfront is a classic example. Whereas, the city developed in the North and the East and across the Trans Thane creek, the Eastern area known as Portland remained virtually unknown and derelict. With the government taking the initiative of a holistic development for the city, the Eastern Water Front has now come into prominence. About 1000 acres of the virtually vacant land can be developed for the larger benefit of the residents of Mumbai. The Mumbai Port Trust, owner of this vast area has recognized the importance of developing this hitherto neglected area and create the infrastructure and public utilities to improve the quality of life of Mumbaikars. The development of our Eastern Water Front will offer immense opportunities in the form of construction, hospitality, specialized medical, schooling, shopping, and many more, to integrate all the participants of the eco-system for a common good. It will also increase the open spaces in Mumbai. We hope the dynamic initiatives of the Mumbai Port Trust will help in making of a new Mumbai on the Eastern Portlands, and will bear fruit shortly. The push being given by our dynamic Union Minister Mr Nitin Gadkari will add to the speed of this initiative for the common good of the vast populace of the island city. Development of the Eastern Water Front is thus most engaging for new, novel, innovative and imaginative ideas in implementation. I am happy to note that considering the interest that the development of the Portlands is generating, IMC’s Committee on Urban Development and Infrastructure, headed by Mr

Pranay Vakil, and APLI Mumbai joined hands and organized a Conference, this year as well, to understand the developmental aspects of Portland. The Conference was also an exercise to suggest to the government the importance of preserving our cultural heritage, in the form of a Maritime Museum and such other initiatives. The discussions, the talk, the presentations by the Mumbai Port Trust, and other policy makers, the architects, the members of civil society, conducted during the day were thought provoking and the speakers voiced their observations, comments and suggestions in a frank and free manner. The proceedings that are being brought out will go a long way in documenting the Conference and would be used as reference material. I wish the initiatives of the Chamber and APLI Mumbai great success in their future endeavours.

Setting the Conference Theme

Portlands’ - An Opportunity Four years ago, when the Eastern Freeway was opened to the public, it also opened the eyes of ordinary citizens like me! There is such a contrast on what lies on the left of the freeway (driving to Chembur) and what lies on the right – a startling difference! On the one hand, you have a density of over 28,500 people per sq. km. – one of the highest in the world … and on the other hand, there are no people or civilization worth mentioning…. Looking at Google maps, it is evident that about a third of Mumbai peninsula is outside most people’s purview and imagination. Almost coinciding with our Conference “Regenerating Mumbai’s Portlands”, the DCR 2034 was released – a new Master Plan for Mumbai, which controls development of the City of Mumbai, and which, in any case, is about 5 years delayed. There is a proposal to raise the FSI for the Island City and to throw open certain areas, which were hitherto “No Development Zones (NDZ)”. Also, salt lands are sought to be thrown open for developing affordable housing. Can one even begin to imagine what DCR 2034 will look like, if development of 1700 acres Port Land is included into the master plan??? In fact, I believe, a combined master plan, would not only look very different, but more balanced, in terms of open spaces, requirement for additional infrastructure, recreation areas and tourism, something that is really lacking in Mumbai today.

From Vision & Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


I strongly feel that we have this “once in a lifetime opportunity”, to correct the omissions made over the years and to set right the balance of development. If we let this opportunity pass, I don’t think the next generation will forgive us. I also strongly believe that Mumbai Port Trust is holding this land “in trust” for us Mumbaikars. We Mumbaikars must prevail upon the authorities concerned to unlock the value of these BPT lands for the benefit of Mumbaikars. Since this calls for an unprecedented approach and a lot of “out of the box” thinking, may I suggest we have a “CEO”, who can coordinate between the Centre, the State, BMC, Railways, et al?? Good Luck!

APLI Mumbai Activities 2016-2018 Sewree Ecopark APLI Mumbai conducted an architects and planners charette at Sewree on 19 Jun 2016, kind courtesy Indian Maritime University. The aim was to generate ideas for a nature park at Sewree. This park would replace the old ‘kerosene jetty’ which was celebrated by BNHS as the viewing point for flamingos. The ideas were presented to the Chairman MbPT.

To popularise the site and bring out the potential for tourism, APLI Mumbai and the Sewree Koli Samaj celebrated a Koli Cuisine festival on 23rd October, 2016 which was attended by over 400 Mumbaikars.

From Vision & Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


We are happy to note that these initiatives culminated in MbPT issuing a tender for a consultant to develop the ecopark. The work had to be re-tendered twice to obtain satisfactory responses. The work order is being awarded to a leading landscape consultant of Mumbai by May 2018.

Sassoon Dock Modernisation of Sassoon Dock was announced by the Government in 2014 APLI Mumbai can claim credit for the close follow up through the Ministries in Delhi, and Mantralaya in Mumbai for sanction in 2016. APLI Mumbai and IMC conducted a stakeholders meeting in Oct 2016. A comprehensive report was submitted in Oct 2016. APLI Mumbai conducted a design charette in Nov 2016 where 60 professionals and architects generated a number of ideas which were presented to the chairman MbPT.

We are happy to note that our follow up resulted in the award of a consultancy contract by Maharashtra Fisheries Development Corporation to M/s Unison of Pune, and contracts for civil works and a new tube ice plant will be issued shortly.

Coal handling at Hajee Bunder APLI Mumbai identified that dumping of 1.8 million tons per annum in Sewree was the cause of severe dust pollution affecting the residents of eastern Sewree. APLI took up a campaign to oppose the Consent to Operate

12

From Vision & Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


authorised by the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board. .APLI Mumbai filed a PIL through Advocate Kusumakar Kaushik the lead speaker at Session VI of the PortLands conference of 2016. When the authorities prevaricated despite orders of the Bombay High Court, APLI Mumbai filed a second PIL. We are happy to note that Mumbai Port Trust voluntarily halted import of coal with effect from 30 Sep 2015. APLI Mumbai defended in court attempts to implead third parties into the case. Citizens of Mumbai are gratified that the attempts at restarting coal imports through Hajee Bunder have been negated by a resolute Board of the Mumbai Port Trust.

Hajee Bunder Friendly Football Tournament APLI Mumbai conducted the Hajee Bunder Friendly Football tournament to celebrate the clean environment at Hajee Bunder and Hay Bunder as a result of stoppage of coal handling. 8 local teams participated in the friendly tournament played on the MbPT football ground in an attempt to regain the lost opportunities for sports and recreation at a ground which was used by cadets of T.S. Dufferin and DMET 60 years ago, and who are now Master Mariners and Chief Engineers of the merchant marine. Certificates of participation were awarded by the Chairman MbPT

Marina APLI Mumbai has been a strong and persistent advocate of a marina to provide a home for over 200 boats moored off the Gateway of India. The conference of 2016 had a special session chaired by Mr Parag Jain M.D. of MTDC and APLI Mumbai supporter Mr Simon Arrol reiterated our demand for a Marina at Princes Dock. We are delighted that MbPT has now issued a tender for consultancy services for a marina for 200 boats at Princes Dock.

Mumbai Maritime Museum APLI Mumbai was invited by MbPT in Jul 2017. to conduct a charette for brain storming on possibilities for regeneration of the docks areas. One of the ideas was to convert the traffic house into a maritime Museum. APLI Mumbai pursued the proposal to get leading Architect Brinda Somaya to visualise the renovation and establishment of a maritime museum and Ms Anita Garware to lead a movement to establish a trust. Time will tell how the project will proceed.

Cruise Terminal The Offshore Container Terminal Jetty is 700m in length and 60 m wide with 10m draught available alongside. There is even provision to increase the length to 1050 m. APLI Mumbai has advocated the use of this jetty for international cruise tourism. We are delighted that MbPT has established cruise tourism in Mumbai with 40 ships sailing from Ballard Pier in 2017-18 with the myriad challenges being overcome by a dedicated management team of MbPT. The authorities recognise that the potential for tourism is great. Therefore APLI Mumbai is confident that in a very few years, the OCT jetty with its splendid width will also be considered ideal for international cruise ships. Walkability Human Scale has been the mantra of urban planners participating in APLI Mumbai’s discussions. Therefore APLI Mumbai’s advocacy of promenades and cycling tracks finds place in the draft master plan being finalised shortly. APLI Mumbai had submitted a formal note in 2014 that MbPT or its subsidiary should be designated as a Special Planning Authority. We are delighted that the Government of Maharashtra has issued the notification in 2018 designating MbPT as an SPA under the Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning Act. With the proactive management at MbPT citizens of Mumbai will hope for speedy implementation of regeneration proposals in hand.

Conference Highlights

Dr L Kanodia President of IMC Chamber of Commerce and Industry delivered his inaugural address to the gathering which had filled the Walchand Hirachand Hall. He launched the IMCAPLI Mumbai PortLands Conference, the third in the series, on the subject of Regenerating Mumbai’s PortLands. He said that Mumbaikar’s were unaware of the status of 1000 acres of land along the Eastern Waterfront. He was shocked to discover in 2014 that a million tons of coal were being imported into the city. He was on a visit to Hajee Bunder with committee members of IMC and APLI Mumbai. Coal Handling has since ceased. Dr Kanodia urged the audience to participate in Regenerating Mumbai’s PortLands. Mr Pranay Vakil, Chairman Urban Development, Smart Cities, Real Estate and Infrastructure Committee of IMC set the theme for the Conference. He said that we have started the process of unlocking value of non-functional land. We must convey to the authorities our aspirations and make sure we are heard. We must convey to the authorities that this is Mumbaikar’s land. DCR should be integrated with PortLands for planning purposes. We are sure that it will happen. We must reallocate land better. We must question the present land usage. Should Arthur Road Jail be where it is? Mill lands went to the highest bidder and not to the ones who wanted to do something good. Mr Vakil proposed the establishment of a single body with a CEO for Mumbai.He laid out the programme for the day with the objective as “Discuss, Deliberate and Decide”. He believed the motto of Meera Sanyal that the PortLands were held in trust by MbPT for the citizens of Mumbai, so that we have land for the citizens by the citizens.

The keynote address was delivered by Mr Yashodhan Wanage, Dy Chairman of Mumbai Port Trust. He dwelt on the aspirations which had been identified in 2016, and over 25 projects which have been taken up during the last two years. The most important success was establishing Mumbai as the home port for Cruise ships. 40 cruise ships sailed from Ballard Pier last year. Other projects in hand include an ecopark at Sewree, domestic cruise terminal, ropeway to Elephanta and Ro-Ro service to Mandwa. This was followed by Q &A with Chief Guest Mr Sanjay Bhatia in the chair. He explained that containers unloaded at JNPT intended for Mumbai would be shipped by barges to Mumbai’s docks. This would relieve congestion in the Thane- Bhiwandi route. Ms Tasneem Mehta highlighted the need for good design in new projects. The conference had four sessions as follows:• Meeting Mumbai’s Future: Speaker Mr Sanjay Ubale • A Maritime Museum for Mumbai: Speakers Brinda Somaya and Cdr Mohan Narayan, I.N. (Retd) • Modernisation of Sassoon Dock: Speakers Mr VK Deshpande and Mr Dilip Shekdar • Passenger Water Transport on Eastern Waterfront: Speaker Capt Harish Khatri An Open forum elicited a wide range of views. A Vote of Thanks was delivered by Vice Admiral IC Rao (Retd), President of APLI Mumbai.

Executive Summary

This is the third conference in the series “Regenerating Mumbai’s PortLands” organised jointly by APLI Mumbai and IMC Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Dr L Kanodia, has been an ardent supporter of these efforts through all three conferences and especially now as President of IMC. In his keynote address, Mr Yashodhan Wanage recalled the aspirations of the citizens outlined in the APLI Mumbai Citizens’ vision Plan as shared in the 2014 and 2016 PortLands Conferences. He described in detail the features of 25 New Projects planned by Mumbai Port Trust, which give shape to these Citizens’ aspirations such as the Development of International and Domestic Cruise Terminals, Ro Pax Services between Mumbai, Mandwa and Nerul, Development of a Marina at Princes Dock area, the ropeway over sea from Sewree to Elephanta island, the development of a multi speciality hospital and medical college etc. His description of the St Jude accommodation facilities that MBPT has set up for parents and care givers of children undergoing treatment at Tata Cancer Hospital drew heartfelt applause. A Fifth Oil Berth, Leasing out of Hughes Dock and Coastal Movement of JNPT Containers to Mumbai Port for City Consumption were other high priority projects in the pipeline. The Chief Guest, Mr Sanjay Bhatia, Chairman of Mumbai Port Trust answered questions from the well informed and activist audience. He shared that the Master Plan and the Land policy for the PortLands have been prepared and are awaiting approval. MbPT will be designated as a Special Planning Authority which will enable the master plan to be executed quickly.

He said that Cruise ships tourism would be the USP of Mumbai Port as the huge potential for this business has been acknowledged by all. Liquid cargo operations will henceforth be the mainstay of port operations. MbPT has issued a tender for handling of containers from JNPT, via barges to Mumbai port. This will reduce congestion in the Thane Bhiwandi area and save transportation charges to the trade. He advised Citizen activists who wish to contribute their ideas, to participate constructively in the brain storming sessions organised on a regular basis by APLI Mumbai. Such sessions have been held for Sewree Ecopark, Sassoon Dock, and Indira Docks, and the feedback and ideas from these sessions, have been incorporated into MBPTs plans. As Speaker for the First Session, Mr. Sanjay Ubale, challenged the MBPT and the audience to not consider the PortLands in isolation but as a part of the entire city. In fact he said we should consider the entire Eastern Waterfront and not just the PortLands when we envisage the future of Mumbai. He emphasised that the Refineries, Chemical and Power plants on the eastern waterfront are a health and safety hazard and should be relocated out of Mumbai. Strong east -west connectivity, basic zoning of Infrastructure and a Master Plan are essential. The panel chaired by Mr Pradip Madhavji focused on the ‘do-ability’ of these plans. Urban planner Prathima Manohar stressed that Cities depend on human capital. Planning should be “Human Scale” and pedestrian friendly. Panellist Mr Panjwani added that private operators can fund development. Co- panellist Brinda Somaya said that the master plan should be subdivided into smaller plans which

From Vision & Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018

21


would be easier to implement – in line with the APLI Mumbai’s Citizens’ vision plan of 12 to 14 neighbourhood projects. Leading the discussion on the second session, noted architect and Heritage conservationist, Ms Brinda Somaya described the iconic Gharial Ghar clock tower building in the Mumbai docks as being the perfect choice for Mumbai’s Maritime Museum. Her presentation painted a vivid picture of what this beautiful structure could look like, once lovingly restored. Cdr Mohan Narayan described what a Maritime Museum could add to the city of Mumbai. He shared that the Museum could effortlessly be set up as the artefacts which were exhibited in 2002 and 2011 on the Vikrant when she was a museum ship, are all available and the numerous maritime agencies that need to be involved would all gladly collaborate for such a project. Ms Tasneem Zakaria, curator of the Bhau Daji Ladd Museum and Ms Anita Garware noted historian added their experiences, emphasising that such an institution would add greatly to the culture quotient of our city and its tourism potential The panel chaired by Admiral VS Shekhawat urged that the Museum should be interactive and friendly for all types of visitors. The third session focussed on the Sassoon Dock modernisation plans. Keynote speaker Mr VK Deshpande of UNISON, shared an animated walk through of the proposed ice factory, conveyor systems and new auctions halls. Co- speaker Mr Dilip Shekdar described the plans for traffic circulation and a stakeholder friendly approach to revamping the dock. He shared that tourist friendly amenities such as a plaza, retail fish market, open exhibition space, amphitheatre, viewing decks and walkways are proposed. The presentation shared a

22

From Vision & Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


detailed study on water requirements, port hygiene, fish handling plant, evacuation of waste & sewage etc. The panel chaired by Ms Meera Sanyal discussed concerns by citizens of the problems of coordination between MbPT, MFDC and various stakeholders who wished to retain status quo, which were leading to delays in the project. Mr Rustom Irani while stressing that improvements are vital to meet the requirements of importers and EU regulators who visit the Docks, warned against the new facilities becoming white elephants due to lack of maintenance. Ms Mansi Sahu emphasised that the needs of the local fisher folk and Koli cuisine and culture should be the central theme of the revamped Sassoon Dock As keynote speaker of the Fourth session, Capt Khatri presented details of the Ro-Ro service from Ferry Wharf to Mandwa where the breakwater, jetty, link span have already been completed. He shared that Services are expected to commence by mid May and continue right through the Monsoon. The Panel chaired by Mr. Michael Pinto, doyen of the maritime policy making community led a lively discussion on viability which was answered plainly by Capt Khatri who said that Mumbai must develop ‘sea legs’! Cdr KK Sharma dispelled notions of operating ferries on the west coast during monsoons. Mr Debi Goenka pointed out that investments should be for the common man and not for car centric projects. He also emphasised that Public transport all over the world is subsidised openly whereas Private transport is also subsidised, but this is hidden. The Open Forum’. Conducted by Mr Pranay Vakil heard a plea for the PortLands to be a model of access friendly design for those with disabilities. Mr Pranay Vakil proposed a separate seminar on the subject of the new DCR and integration of the city’s plans with the PortLands Master Plan, once this was released into the public domain.

Keynote Address

The Mumbai Port Trust has taken up a number of projects in the last two years. We have been working hard to implement the projects, some of which were discussed two years ago at the IMC-APLI Mumbai conference. The slide shows a list of 25 projects in hand. These are a follow up from the large number of aspirations discussed in 2016 like parks, hospitals, schools, entertainment hubs, a marina and sports facilities. We have taken into account the the citizens vision plan, shown in the slide. We have successfully operated the cruise ship terminal at Ballard Pier where 40 ships called during the last season. The new cruise terminal will cater to 200 ships per year of capacity up to 5000 passengers per ship. This will generate employment and benefit the local economy. We are also developing a domestic cruise terminal along Princes Dock. The service to Goa will start shortly. The approach from Purple Gate will also have a promenade and recreational area. Kanhoji Angre Island with a lighthouse has been made accessible by a jetty. An RFP is being floated shortly to engage a developer for tourist facilities. A Roll on- Roll off service facility has been built at Ferry Wharf. The service will operate to Mandwa and Nerul. We are going to build a Marina for 200 boats with water area of 5ha in what was the Princes Dock. An international consultant has been appointed. A ropeway from Hajee Bunder to Elephanta will be a PPP project. It will be the world’s tallest and longest ropeway over the sea of 8 km. We feel it will be a tremendous tourist attraction for the whole of Mumbai. To cater to the additional traffic into Port areas, we are building additional roads connecting Orange Gate, Ro Pax terminal, etc to the Eastern Freeway.

24

From Vision & Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


We feel that “GhadiyalGodi” which was the first building at the Mumbai Port, 100 years old, near the Carnac Bunder within the Prince’s Dock can be a maritime museum, depicting history of Mumbai Port, art and culture. Since, the building is within the Custom bound area, it is not accessible to general public, as on date. The heritage building is an excellent piece of Victorian architecture. MbPT intends to develop the museum under PPP mode where additional revenue can be generated by way of essential public amenities e.g. cafeteria. MbPT is preparing a proposal which will be finalized with the experts in the field. It is expected that the project will be completed within next two years. The botanical garden at Colaba will be maintained by a Trust. Sassoon Dock is being modernised jointly with the Government of Maharashtra. The existing hospital at Wadala will be upgraded to a super speciality hospital to cater to additional patients. A consultant is being appointed to design and develop an ecological park at Sewree. All these will benefit the citizens of Mumbai. We are also expanding the port facilities with a fifth oil berth, and a bunkering terminal, MbPT has also called for tenders to ferry containers from JNPT by barge to supply the city of Mumbai which is a large consuming centre for imported items. The Offshore Container Terminal berth is now being used for exporting cars and buses. The slide shows the largest car carrier in the world berthing at Mumbai. There has been an all round effort at transparency, increase in efficiency and modernisation. The Hughes Dry Dock repair facility has been leased to Cochin Shipyard Ltd.

Q & A with Mr Sanjay Bhatia Q by Adm Shekhawat Mr Wanage gave a very fine presentation. The P & V Docks which have been filled up will be excavated partially for a marina for 200 boats. Experience tells us that this is under-ambitious. Ans: We have engaged an international consultant from Italy. We will await his report. 200 was a conscious decision. There are other marinas available for yacht owners. The breakwater at Mandwa will be extended to include a boat marina. Navi Mumbai will also have a marina.

Q by Adm Shekhawat Rope Way to Elephanta – I have not heard of one across a harbour where boats can ply. Moreover, it will be an eye sore. Ans: This is the first time I have heard that a ropeway is an eye sore. On the other hand most people say “Do it”. It will be a great tourist attraction. It will be a wonder and give tourists an aerial view from the highest point. This is not for transportation. We have moved the take off point further south towards Hajee Bunder. It will not land at Elephanta which does not have adequate space. It will land on MbPT’s inter tidal area. It is a PPP project of Rs 600 Cr. This will not involve Government expenditure.

32

Q by Adm Shekhawat Water sports is being considered. However, the water in the harbour is toxic and will not qualify. Ans: The water sample readings are available every month. They do not indicate that water is toxic. The sewage from the city is discharged into the harbour after only primary treatment. The BMC has tendered for secondary and tertiary treatment and this will improve water quality in the harbour.

Q Adm Shekhawat Blockage of water circulation is a macro problem causing siltation Ans: CWPRS ( Central Water & Power Research Station, Khadakvasla) have a simulation model for the entire port of Mumbai. They advise us on siltation patterns and we can consult them. We will have a large central Park, bigger than Hyde Park in the middle. It will entail reclamation of some inter tidal land. This is under study.

Q. Mr Sudhakar Malpe, Land management India Pvt Ltd What is the yawning gap between Rani Jadhav report and your plan? Ans: Rani Jadhav’s was a preliminary report. After that we have appointed a professional

consultant. They have prepared a Master Plan which is not in the market yet. It includes a proposal to make MbPT an SPA (Special Planning Authority under MRTP Act (Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning Act), When the draft plan is released, we will invite objections and we hope there won’t be too many, and we can come to conclusions. We will not go ahead without stake holders consultations. Rani Jadhav Report was the base.

Q. Mr Manoj Motta, Banyan Resources What is the process for acquiring 2 lakh sq ft for land as a distribution centre for seeds etc. Ans: We have no plans for a distribution centre. At present 60 % of the containers coming to JNPT are for Mumbai. About 1000 trailers go to Bhiwandi. Then 12000 trucks come into the city. This causes congestion and pollution. To reduce this traffic we have called for tenders to offload containers into barges at JNPT, bring them to Indira Dock, give them a green channel to our godowns. The parameter for the tender is to offer the cheapest rate to the Trade. What we are doing is a major thing. This route will have to compete with Bhiwandi. The tenders will be finalised by July and the system will be in place by the next season. Therefore there is no separate plan for a distribution centre. The land required for port operations will be retained. Remainder will be developed as per the new master plan.75% will be the green area. The footprint of the buildings will be only 25 %.

Q Ms Shreela Sharan, Architect As young professionals, and architects, how can we participate in the planning and development process. Ans: The answer lies with the gentleman sitting next to me (President APLI Mumbai). For new projects he has organised brain storming sessions (charettes) where all are invited. We have had sessions for Sassoon Dock, Sewree Ecopark, Indira Docks etc and we have incorporated the ideas from these sessions. You are all welcome to get involved..

Q Ms Rina Kamath How eco friendly are you in your planning. Are you considering renewable energy, solar energy? Do you have waste to energy plants, fish waste recycling, rain water harvesting, etc. Or will this be a drain on the conventional energy resources. Ans: Yes we have all these in the plan. Actually we have implemented many such measures already.

Q Ms Aruna Reddy, Pillai School of Architecture Have you taken into consideration the changing demographics? Ans: Yes, planners always take into consideration demographics at the outset. In our case we are providing green space. The focus is not on the port but tourism and entertainment infrastructure. When the new plan is approved, we will share it.

Q Architect For 40 years there have been slum dwellers in Lakdi Bunder, Koyla bunder etc. They are not aware of the development plans. Ans: We have prepared a land policy. It is not yet approved. Relocation may be within 2 km. There is no policy for re-allotment. Master Plan is still not finalised. The land leases in Colaba and Ballard Estate are planned to be renewed. The renewal process could be by tender or SOR. It is not yet decided.

Q Mr Rajesh Doshi Marine Engineer My concern is the comfort of the passengers on the Ro – Ro route from Ferry Wharf to Mandwa during the monsoons. Ans: The vessels are actually large ships and not boats. One is from Greece and the other from China. The operators have assured us that they can operate in the monsoons.

Q Ms Anju Lohani How will this affect the environment. should be transferred to Dahanu

JNPT

Ans: There is no such plan. Port is going to be there always. Liquid cargo will be the main stay. USP of the port will be cruise tourism. India has huge potential for cruises. Simultaneously we are developing domestic cruise terminal via purple Gate.

36

From Vision & Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


Q. What about connectivity between the main city and the port Ans: We are laying a lot of stress on connectivity. East- West as well as NorthSouth. Underground metro rail. There will be a CST – Panvel corridor too.

Q Ms Vimal Thakore Containers from JNPT are creating congestion in Kalyan and Bhiwandi. Ans: We are offering a sea route for containers from JNPT to Mumbai

Q Tasneem Mehta (Bhau Daji Lad Museum) Have you got anybody looking into design? Miami is recognised because it has excellent design. There should be a monitoring committee of people who understand design. Ans: This will be a planned small city.75 % will be green spaces and 25 % built up. Point about design is noted.

Q Ms Preeti Shenoy Colaba and Ballard Pier leases will be renewed, What about Masjid Bunder to Sewree? Ans: These will be redeveloped. There will be no renewal of leases.

Session I: Meeting Mumbai’s Future

Speaker Mr Sanjay Ubale Mr Ubale said that Port Regeneration is one of his favourite topics. He was speaking as a citizen of Mumbai and not on behalf of his organisations, present or past. He invited the assemblage to look beyond Mumbai’s Back Bay to the Front Bay which is the Harbour and the Eastern Waterfront. Port regeneration is important to make Mumbai a global city, connected to the world. History deals with the past but affects the future. Port activity started in 1660. Reclamation in 1840’s created the dock areas in time to take advantage of the opening of the Suez Canal. Shortage of cotton in England due to the American Civil War made Mumbai and the port the leading exporter of cotton in the world. Now Containerised cargo has moved to JNPT and Mumbai Port is in decline. Therefore Mumbai must follow the pattern of other ports in the world to redevelop its waterfront. Sydney, Singapore, London and New York have done it. Their representatives should be invited to Mumbai to share their experience because they had a lot of discussion with stakeholders and lessons were learnt. They too relocated people. Princes & Victoria Docks should never have been filled up. We need to commercialise the port and create recreation and tourism infrastructure, and unveil a Master Plan which must be integrated with the new developments especially in the Eastern Metropolitan Region which is developing rapidly with Navi Mumbai airport, MTHL, Delhi corridor, Metro rail, etc. 38

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


When the environment Clearance was issued for creation of JNPT, it was stipulated that the cargo traffic in Mumbai must be reduced from 60 million tpa to 6.5 million tpa. This has not happened. The land lying unused is being encroached upon. Third party interests are being created. It is a blunder not to integrate the Port in the DCR 2034. When ordinary citizens start visiting the port areas they will raise issues and solutions will emerge. We have to choose between status quo (comes from the past); city of the present (meet existing demands) or city of the future and meet the future. Mr Ubale complimented MbPT for discontinuing ship breaking, with oil spills and pollution, and for regenerating Sassoon Dock. Now the port should become its own SPA and create a new CBD. He hoped IMC will come forward to regenerate Nariman Point, and connect it with PortLands. Lack of connectivity causes congestion. So P Dmello road should become an 8 lane highway. At the same time Rashtriya Chemicals and Fertilizers (RCF), the three oil refineries and Power Generation should be moved away from the city. The entire Eastern seafront of what we call the ‘Front Bay’ will then be cleared, not just PortLands but all across to Navi Mumbai which is taking off.

The Port Trust needs revenue and can develop Alewadi which has 17m draft, even better than JNPT, which is restricted to 14m. Industrial Users like Hindustan Levers and Tata Oil Mills must give back to the city. Suburban Railway Stations must be redeveloped to make Sewree a transport hub. With these developments the port will have a new CBD which can make Mumbai a global financial centre, instead of Gujarat’s GIFT city trying to take away Mumbai’s legitimate role. The CBD should also have a large trade fair centre as the one at Goregaon is not adequate. The Marina, RO-RO ferry services and making Cross Island a landmark with the statue of Shivaji to protect the harbour will signal that we have arrived. Next steps should be to represent to the Government for BMC to join a task force and make a Block Plan, and prepare a draft Master Plan. Moving forward, Mr Ubale posed the question “can we do it? Do we have the vision?” and answered it himself “Not sure we have it – It is better to leave things as they are rather than do a bad job”

Panelists Mr Pradeep Madhavji, Chairman Dr Brinda Somaya Mr Naushad Panjwani Ms Prathima Manohar

Pradip Madhavji, Chairman of panel I am a travel and tourism man. We need to focus on tourism for national integration which is more important than foreign tourists.

Q. How do you feel about coordination between State Government and Central Government? Prathima Manohar: It is all about how to make Mumbai more productive, bridge the gap between public spaces and liveability. This concept is not a middle class luxury. Lot of public investment is required to make the city people centric and not car centric. Cities depend on human capital. Planning should be “Human Scale� pedestrian friendly. Hard

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018

Infrastructure should not be predominant. We need footpaths. PortLands should take the leadership role to promote walkability. This large complex urban infrastructure needs a new organisation, a new entity. Brinda Somaya: Time is not on our side. Smaller things should be done. “God of small Projects� is my theme. We can have a Master Plan but the planner is not responsible for implementation. MbPT cannot do it alone. MCGM and others must join. We must sub divide the master plan and make it inclusive. There are 12 to 15 architecture schools in Mumbai. Their students have brilliant ideas. They talk of hostels, care for migrant workers, etc. We should not be overwhelmed.

Q. What about funding? Naushad Panjwani: There are already many PPP projects planned by MbPT funded by private operators. There are enough ways of monetising. But infrastructure should be by the Government. Precious land should be monetised. Ahmedabad has monetised land in remote suburbs. So with 1000 acres available, with the right focus, Mumbai should do it too. Mr Wanage: Travel and Tourism solutions are available. The present Minister is a task master. Naushad Panjwani: Government residential colonies in the city have low rise buildings with large footprint. They are in a bad condition even in Malabar Hill area. Policemen and Government servants are living in slums. Social cause can be met by redevelopment through high rise residential buildings. Conservatives may not like it. Prathima Manohar: Monetisation is possible through tourism, cruise terminals, both intrastate and inter-state tourism.We must have the bigger vision before taking up small projects. Of course we can have tactical interventions. We were promised open spaces in the mill lands when I was a student. So now let us not destroy this last large parcel of land in Mumbai.Other cities have similar experiences. Barcelona was equally complex, with legal problems, encroachment etc but it was done.Mumbai is not affordable for starting a new business or practice. So I moved out.

44

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


Naushad Panjwani: It must be a great master plan. It must include Government housing which is in bad shape, thru CSR. Mixed use is necessary because Ballard Estate is dead at night. Brinda Somaya: Plan for the next 5 years. Have long term plans but do short term things to show development is happening. This is very complicated but assurance is required from the Government on long term. Madhav Premji: Next time we should go through through Purple Gate, so we have a better idea of thePortLands area and its potential and problems!

Session II: Mumbai Maritime Museum

Speaker Dr Brinda Somaya Organic urban renewal requires vibrancy, mixed primary use, short blocks which are walkable without being overwhelmed by strangers so that residents feel safe and secure. Renewal should cater to all categories & various demographics. Grand scale must be reduced to the least common denominator - the human and the pedestrian. Regenerating urban space is urgent because by 2050 there will be huge shortages when 700 million people will move to our cities. This will be the largest urban movement in the history of mankind. We have to decide how we look at land, how we treat it. There are severe challenges and equally large opportunities for Mumbai. Mumbai started with seven islands and it is what it is today through massive reclamation starting in 1670, through 1820, 1880 and from 1930 to 1970. Mumbai Port Trust was established in 1873 on mostly reclaimed land. We must remember that the water front of the Mumbai port is not the original natural water front.

For redevelopment, we need innovation. I find that innovation has gone down. How do we innovate? The Citizens’ vision plan of APLI Mumbai has identified several neighbourhoods and a series of smaller projects. These smaller projects can be combined together to create the ‘whole’. We need to re-invigorate the city for each and every citizen. Now turning to the topic for today, Mumbai’s Maritime Museum, restoration of the Gharial Ghar building. Time is not on our side because the various objects, photographs, precious items which are to be displayed in the museum are deteriorating. We have to save them or they will be destroyed. It is an amazing building built between 1888 to 1890. It has a beautiful clock tower and a historic time ball tower. It is unspoilt because it has had minimum interventions, which is wonderful. We will get 8000 sq ft per floor and in all 25000 sq ft, which is ideal for a museum. A large terrace with a view of the harbour and the new developments on the East, will add to the visitor experience. The Dock explosion did not destroy this building. It is in solid black basalt, has magnificent stone arches and steel trusses all in good condition, Marble plaques, large halls without columns and a memorial in front. It does need restoration work which must be done professionally. This involves a detailed inspection and condition mapping which is a complex process. We need funds but we have positive indications. Clock Towers were strategically placed all over Mumbai. Rajabai clock tower was restored recently. At Rajabai clock tower we had created a landing at 200 ft height. So we know it can be done and this Museum clock will soon be ticking again. People will come not just to see objects. We can have parking but restrict cars, have cycle tracks, walking areas. It must be interactive for adults, children, villagers. All must feel comfortable and not be embarrassed in a strange place. At CSMVS we had an exhibition of India and the World to tell the story of trade. We should not copy other museums, but what we do should be world class. There are logistics issues. How do we bring people in. We can have a road that comes in. The Ro-Ro terminal, the Marina, open spaces and this Museum can form a very nice cluster for tourists. We can have an under pass via Purple Gate. Under passes are now common all over the world. We don’t have a Maritime Museum today. We need one. We must start now.

INDIAN OCEAN TRADE DEEP BLUE


Speaker Cdr Mohan Narayan It is an anachronism that a city like Mumbai which owes its existence and prosperity to the sea, does not have a Maritime Museum. Two attempts were made earlier. Today we are again on the verge of having a Museum and we look forward to the day when the city will have its own Maritime Museum. Why do we require a Maritime Museum? Because, it engages people who have no exposure to the maritime environment, to our maritime culture of 4 millennia, and encourages them towards a sea based future. It must be an educative place without being didactic. It must be experiential, not a place just to look at objects. Visitors should be able to relate to the surroundings and therefore the best place for a Maritime Museum will be the port. A museum also creates a secondary resource for people who have an interest in the subject for research. Our Museum can have seven important sections. The first is Oceanography. The geography of the Indian Ocean is different from the other oceans. The earliest means of transportation was by sea. Man hoisted a sail before riding a horse. In Sanskrit, nau means a boat and gati is progress. Navigation is a similar word though not a derivative. Bali yatra, voyages to the Arabian Gulf, Chola voyages, and maritime trade are interesting subjects for such a museum.

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018

53


The next would be Shipbuilding. The Bombay Dockyard was the world’s leading shipbuilding centre in the 18th and 19th century. The Wadias built over 400 ships Maritime communities can be a focal point. Objectives of Museums have changed over time to make them interactive. We can have simulators showing submarines, aircraft carriers, charts giving information to plot your position. Sailors are superstitious. Hence sea stories, myths and legends could be shown. We have enough instances in our history for an action packed sound and light show of 20 to 30 minutes. No single agency can set up the Maritime Museum. There are several agencies like the Navy, Coastguard, Shipping Corporation, Mumbai Port Trust, as shown in the slde, and they are all in Mumbai. We have to get everybody on board, to form a Mumbai Maritime Museum Trust, with a Board of Trustees. All major players should have a stake in the success. Stake holders include historians, environmentalists, conservationists, and private citizens. On 2 different occasions the Indian Navy established a maritime Museum. In 1979 to 1983 at the Middle Ground Island in the harbour and from 2000 to 2014 in the INS Vikrant, which was most successful. Circumstances conspired against these and this audience knows what happened to the Vikrant. It is a natural progression from the Vikrant to the Gharial Ghar. This is the “Way Forward”. Two Maritime Heritage exhibitions were held in Mumbai. The first was in 2001 at the Old building of the Royal Bombay Yacht Club which attracted huge crowds. In 2011 the Indian Navy organised a display in the then Prince of Wales Museum, now the CSMVS. Various agencies participated. The exhibits are shown in the presentation slide. Their explanation will have to wait for the Museum to be set up! They include a cup presented by the Royal Pakistan Navy to the Royal Indian Navy in 1948, at partition. The President of India inaugurated this exhibition which coincided with the Naval Fleet Review. Commander Dhonde is seen explaining his solo circumnavigation of the earth. This was captioned in next day’s newspaper as 4000 years of maritime heritage, but we are still counting. Prescient or Presumptuous was the final presentation slide.

Panelists Adm VS Shekhawat, Chairman Ms Tasneem Zakaria Mehta Ms Anita Garware Dr Shashank Mehendale

Tasneem Zakaria Mehta, Panelist Thank you to Mumbai Port Trust, IMC and APLI Mumbai for this initiative. Dr Somaya reminded me of the struggle to set up the Bhau Daji Lad Museum, which is now one of the top 5 sites to visit in Mumbai. The CSMT is also proposed to be made into a Museum. The main struggle is to find people to run these museums. There are now 65 curators trained at Bhau Daji Lad Museum. So the first task in the establishment of Mumbai Maritime Museum will be to appoint a Curator and collect artefacts. Think about Design. For the first time in Mumbai we have an Urban Arts Commission. Mumbai needs public art like other cities. Invite people to

58

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


enliven spaces. All these must be part of the Master Plan. Do not relegate the Museum merely to deal with the past. It should be much, much, more. Education, technological developments, creativity as a subject, cultural infrastructure,all form part of the process to establish a Museum. We all hope that IMC and APLI Mumbai will look into these aspects. World leaders meet at Museums. e.g. Wuhan on 27 Apr. We also need good museums. Adm VS Shekhawat I visited Mumbai’s Museum when I came to Mumbai in 1955 and I have been a regular visitor at Museums in India and abroad. There is no port city in Europe without a maritime museum. One can hardly over estimate the importance of a Maritime Museum.

Q. to Ms Tasneem Mehta, Why is there a shortage of curators? Tasneem Mehta:The Government undertakes projects on PPP basis.In Bhau Daji Lad Museum, we have support from two leading corporate works, Bajaj and Reliance groups. Therefore the salaries are higher than normal and the staff can be retained. Leadership is also important.

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018

59


Q. by Adm VS Shekhawat, How do you visualize the museum from your perspective? Dr. Brinda Somaya: We have to integrate the city with our PortLands. The word Museum frightens people. So we have to bring in people to connect with their past history and architecture, and develop a sense of identity. Ms Anita Garware: I have been working with MbPTto develop the idea of a Museum. There are marvellous photographs with MbPT of Ballard Estate and its reclamation. They are deteriorating and will be destroyed if not curetted early. Mr Wanage mentioned that a grant may be available from the Ministry of Culture, of Rs 25 Cr. This will be a welcome start for fund raising. Dr. Mehendale: We must establish the structural soundness of the building being considered and start restoration early to prevent any deterioration. Cdr Mohan Narayan: Idea of attracting people to the Museum depends on changing the concept and making the place interactive. Vikrant continued to attract people for 11 years because of the experience of visiting an aircraft carrier. Ms Anita Garware: The crowds will come since we have the marina, cruise terminal, restaurants close together. Adm Shekhawat concluded the session recalling the positive outlook expressed by the earlier speakers though Mr Ubale had doubts towards the end of his presentation. It is our duty to convince those who will play a role in the establishment of the Museum and the authorities on the need for these developments. He exhorted the media to call these public lands and public money and not Government land and Government money.

Session III: Modernization of Sassoon Dock

Speaker Mr V K Deshpande Central Institute of Coastal Engineering for Fisheries (CICEF) had prepared a report on the modernisation of Sassoon Dock in 2014. The current project is in furtherance of that CICEF report. Due to change in conditions during last 5 years, the report has had to be modified. It is a subset of the Plan of Mumbai Port Trust to integrate Sassoon Dock Development. Mr Deshpande showed a video clip of the shocking existing conditions in Sassoon Dock. The aims of modernization are to improve hygienic conditions, decongest traffic, make it stakeholder friendly, and create tourism potential. There are 972 registered trawlers which do 24 to 30 trips per year each. There are 300 fishing days in a year, and about 80 trawlers berth every day at Sassoon Dock. So we have designed for peak demand of 100 per day. Each trawler brings an average of 5 to 6 tons and peak load becomes 500tons per day.

For mechanical handling, ice plants need location near the delivery point. The current system of fuel supply to trawlers is hazardous and does not conform to fuel handling & safety norms. Fuel Handling needs separate area to comply with fire safety codes. The auction halls require reorientation of roof to conform to have North facing light panels. This will also help in orienting solar panels. The abandoned Harbour Management building must be demolished and a new building is to be constructed. Existing net mending area is in the open. This should be replaced by a new shed. Rest rooms have to be replaced by new buildings. A new Tube ice plant of 500 TPD is being contracted shortly, with flake ice plants inside the auction hall, of 5 x 10 TPD. Ice cannot be transported by belt conveyors or chutes. A Screw Conveyor system with 2 outlets per unit will be provided to cater for direct loading into boats. For fish handling we will provide a pump 15 kw, SS dewatering box, conveyor 1200 mm wide for 6 tph . Fish will discharge into a spread table 4.5 x 1.2 m with a mesh conveyor600 mm- 6 tph. Mr VK Deshpande showed an animated presentation of ice distribution to trawlers at berth and mechanized fish handling. One of the objectives of modernization is to generate tourist potential. To align with the future plan of MbPT, provision of leisure fishing jetty with viewing gallery and restaurant facilities are proposed.

64

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


Revised Project Cost is Rs. 96.96 Crores to be implemented in 3 years. There are special project challenges. For example, fish evacuation from trawler can be facilitated if the hatch above each hold is made the same size as the hold itself. Now a man has to enter the hold and pass the fish up in small baskets. If the hatch size is enlarged, a net can lift out the fish in a single lift saving hours of unloading time.Then mechanical handling of fish will be possible. The new ice plant will require efficient operation and maintenance to control prices. Overcrowding of old jetty must be monitored by efficient berthing management. Mr VK Deshpande ended his presentation with an animated walk through of the modernised plant.

Speaker Mr Dilip Shekdar MbPT has planned to redevelop Sassoon Dock area, which involves streamlining of fishing activities, introducing fish tourism and converting the area into a vibrant tourist spot Mr Shekdar described the new circulation of traffic. The existing road along North boundary which is not being used for traffic at present will be activated as the main entry road. Traffic will be one way from main gate via the old dock to the exit gate in the south end. All the fishing and allied activities have been placed on masterplan. The tourism plaza, including viewing decks, and elevated walkways has been conceived as a flow of spaces, with intermingling of fishing and tourism activities. Tourists will be able to visit without disturbing operators. Consolidation of Land for fish tourism will be achieved by re-arranging fishing activities. Implementation of fish tourism will be based on a viable model of development, to be worked out as a complete Business Plan. The Master Plan includes a fish market, an overhead walkway for tourists, outdoor shops and cafes, amphitheatre, open exhibition space and parking areas.

The priority items are Traffic circulation, Repairs to MNC shed, shifting of peeling to available shed, removal of encroachment on roads, segregation into dry & wet waste and higher charges for trucks entry to regulate parking. St+Art organized a street art festival, for a period of 50 days, at Sassoon dock in 2017 and they transformed the area into a throbbing place worth visiting, with participation of local people, use of recycled material, showcase of fisherman’s culture, and provided a platform for international artists.

Mansi Sahu Sassoon Dock is about people. Kolis have a beautiful culture. They celebrate with dance and Koli cuisine. Tourists will come and enjoy their culture. It can be an incubation hub for entrepreneurs too to showcase Marathi culture, and theatre. Modernisation is a step forward but it must be tied to their culture.We are moving towards a new culture. Rustom Irani Everybody would agree it will be a great step (modernisation) even if 50% to 70% of the plans shown to us today fructify. These are incremental changes. The major project for a breakwater was never constructed. So 30% of the docks are not used because boats are not able to berth. Within Sassoon Dock MFDC is implementing the projects, but operation and maintenance agencies must be identified. They must be self sustaining otherwise the Taj Mahal will become a white elephant. Some PPP projects should be implemented in Sassoon Dock also. In Kerala there is a model harbour called Munambam which is organised as a cooperative by stakeholders. In Sassoon Dock, MFDC is looking at the new dock and MbPT is planning for the old dock. Exporters concerns are additional space because catch per boat has been underestimated. The turn over is higher than mentioned by the speakers by a factor of 3. The Government is considering additional harbours under Sagarmala project but fishermen will come only to Sassoon Dock because of higher prices available here, in preference to Ferry Wharf.

72

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


As a policy, for producing more protein rich food, the Government is encouraging aqua culture. A.P. and Gujarat have progressed but Maharashtra is lagging behind. Konkan Area is being developed. The Rajiv Gandhi aquaculture centre is promoting wild farming in the open sea.This will be a new step. Shrimp peeling requires new factories and world class infrastructure which has been established in Navi Mumbai but Sassoon Dock lacks it. This has been an issue with importers from Europe who visit Mumbai. The lease policy has to take into account affordability by the trade. Otherwise fish exports will not be competitive. So overall, there is progress but operation and maintenance has to improve. Meera Sanyal Mr Irani has given us food for thought. Can one agency take over Sassoon Dock instead of MFDC and MbPT. For example, waste from fish processing is at old dock whereas the effluent treatment plant is at the new dock Mr Shekdar There is a coordination committee headed by Chairman of MbPT and with members from MFDC. The plans of MFDC take into account the effluent generated by both old and new docks. MbPT has engaged a contractor to collect solid waste. There is no lack of coordination. Meera Sanyal You mentioned unregistered trawlers. There have been terrorist threats too. VK Deshpande We do not have full statistical data. We are planning on the basis of 50,000 tpa to 60,000 tpa. More landing places will help in easing congestion. Rustom Irani All fishing boats are registered and have identification tags. A Coastal Security Centre has been set up.

Session IV: Passenger Water Transport

Speaker Captain H Khatri I will talk about the Roll on Roll Off service from Ferry Wharf to Mandwa. This will provide an alternate means of transport from Mumbai to Alibaug and Raigad. There is a breakwater at Mandwa which has been completed. There is a jetty of 73 sq m and 760 sq m terminal. The approach jetty is 350m in length.There are 6 mooring dolphins. Dredging has been done, and there is a marshalling yard. The drone photograph of terminal building shown in the presentation was taken the previous day ( 27 Apr) The link span was towed from Belapur and has been installed. Captain Khatri showed an animated video presentation of the Ro-Ro ferry service to be commissioned shortly. Mumbai has 20.7 million people and traffic congestion has to be eased. The Ro-Ro service replaces a 125km journey of 3.5 hours by road, by a 30 mins service. The cost of this service is Rs 135 Cr. The vessel will take 40 cars and 200 passengers. The service is mandated to start on 25 May 2018. This project includes a similar facility to be set up at Nerul in Navi Mumbai.

Panelists Ms Michael Pinto, Chairperson Mr Debi Goenka Mr Ramana Cdr KK Sharma

Michael Pinto Capt Khatri has been a model of brevity. How many trips a day will there be? Capt Khatri Operation is left to the contractor. He has to complete the voyage of 10 nautical miles in less than an hour.The actual capacity of the vessel he is bringing is 100 cars and 300 passengers. So it is a big ship. The Government has not placed any restrictions. It will be an ‘All Weather’ service which is possible due to the breakwater.The design has been approved by the Central Water and Power Research Station, Khadakvasla. They are confident that barring a few adverse monsoon days, the vessel should run throughout the year. The cost we will not interfere with. The ticket rates will be as per market forces. There may be an introductory offer.

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018

77


Michael Pinto Within Mumbai, why should we depend only on trains. Can we have N-S ferry services from Gorai and Borivali. Cdr KK Sharma There is some small amount of rock dredging to be done, and jetties can be built. Service can run for 8 months in the year. It is not possible to operate during the monsoon along the west coast. Capt Khatri After success of the Mandwa route, commercial viability can be re-assessed Cdr KK Sharma On the West coast the wave height is too great during the monsoon, and there is no depth of water at low tide. Passengers will suffer motion sickness, even if the craft can operate. However, hovercraft can operate for 340 days in the year on the East coast. Michael Pinto During the monsoon precipitation is heavy only on about 15 days. Then buses and trains are also disrupted. Can ferries run in the monsoons. Who will pay for passenger water transport as it is not very remunerative. The railways and BEST are subsidised too. Mr Debi Goenka Public Transport is subsidised all over the world and it is transparent. Private transport is also subsidised but the subsidy is hidden from the public. There is free parking, pollution and cost of health services borne by the Government. The Government has not invested funds in upgrading the suburban services. Rs 1500 Cr will enable the suburban capacity to be doubled. Then the N-S Metro will not be required. Expenditure should benefit poor people.

78

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


Dr Ramana Abundance of service should be provided to start with. 2 years time should be given regardless of usage. Then the market will sustain new developments. Leaving it to the operator alone will not work. Water transport should also be similarly subsidised. However, it is not intended for bungalow owners in Alibaug. Mr Rajesh Doshi, Marine Engineer Rain is not a factor for operation of ferry services. It is the weather conditions and wave height. The Ro – Ro service will also be affected by a beam sea in the monsoons. Capt Khatri It is an option to run or not run in the monsoon. The Ro – Ro service will be a new experience, with restaurants too on board. In short, Mumbaikars will develop ‘sea legs’ (applause!!). The Ro- Ro service will be used by a large number of people who travel to Alibaug and Raigad and not only bungalow owners.The connectivity of ferry services along the west coast will improve after the coast road is built as it is now not convenient to connect the landing points to commuter centres. Member, Mumbai Transport Forum MTHL will come up soon. Transportation should be left to PPP projects. Sudhakar Malpe Evacuation in an emergency must be considered Capt Khatri There will be two boats operating.

Open Forum

Mr Pranay Vakil, Chairman, IMC, Urban Development, Smart Cities, Real Estate & Infrastructure Committee; and Vice Admiral IC Rao, President APLI Mumbai invited questions and comments on the days proceedings at an Open Forum. First questioner from the audience asked why Nerul and Mandwa were chosen for the Ro-Ro service from Ferry Wharf. Why was Dronagiri not selected. Secondly why did the first bidder back off when he learnt that the passenger service from Gateway of India to Mandwa would be allowed to continue. Cdr KK Sharma Traffic studies were carried out which indicated that Mandwa and Nerul routes were viable. The third route will be to Mora in Karanja. The contractor for the Ro- Ro service will bring a large ship for the service to Mandwa. A second ship is also planned. Mr Debi Goenka We have had a very interesting session. My points:JNPT was planned as an extention to Mumbai Port. They were to be a single entity but were unfortunately separated and are now competing.

Tidal flow being blocked, as mentioned earlier, is a reality. Even at high tide birds can be seen perched on the mud. Vital waterways at Thane have been blocked, by industrial waste and garbage being dumped and the entire creek is silted up. In connection with the statement by Mr Ubale that there is a front bay in addition to the back bay, it should be noted that the CRZ notification has reduced the No Development Zone (NDZ) width from 500m to 100 m in a bay. This is further being reduced to 50m. One cannot imagine what will happen if Mumbai harbour is declared as a bay. The CM has already announced increase in FSI to 5 for commercial areas and 3 for residential areas. We must think about these issues. CWPRS Pune has a model of Thane creek where the vertical scale is 10x of the horizontal scale in a 3 dimensional model. The kind of modelling being done needs explanation, because siltation is prevalent despite the studies. Ms Rina Kamath Thanked Mr Debi Goenka for his remarks regarding the CRZ in Mumbai. She wanted to bring to the notice of the planners that the city is not friendly to people with disabilities and hence they are cut off from the main stream of life due to lack of access. PortLands should be a model where people with disabilities can move around. (applause!) Chetan Sharma works for a preferred partner of Apple and has designed many popular apps. He recalled speaking with Ms Tasneem Mehta about why our museums do not have a tour guide app for visitors just like museums overseas and finding the reason to be lack of funds. He feels

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018

that he can get the programming community of the city together to create such apps of international design standards for our museums as a tribute. He also mentioned that for a campaign like Aapli Mumbai to be successful a sustained involvement of citizens, citizen groups, and NGOs is essential. To achieve this we need to build platforms that make our cities into Responsive cities, instead of just Smart Cities. The Smart City concept puts the data generated by the city at the centre, but leaves the citizens entirely out. However the new Responsive City revolution is putting the citizens at the centre and use data, analytics etc as tools to make our cities liveable from the perspective of common citizens. We can use technology for citizens to interact with each other. Anil Rao, Ship Management professional He voiced serious concern at MbPT handing over Hughes Dock to CSL which has never been in commercial repair business. He felt that MbPT should revisit the issue and go for open tender instead of nomination of CSL. Architect Jyotsna There is a railway line in MbPT. Instead of waterways, this should be used for N-S connectivity

82

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018


Mr Vakil replied that Mr Sanjay Bhatia had mentioned additional connectivity projects around ferry wharf and Orange Gate to reduce congestion. Question from audience 60 years ago there was ferry service to Goa throughout the year and not only 8 months. Cdr Sharma If a suitable craft is deployed, water transport can be throughout the year. However, wave heights are higher close to the coast and vessels operating close to the coast find it difficult to operate during the monsoon. Mr Anil, Mumbai Vikas Committee Port Land utilisation should be for port related and shipping related uses. Today, except for Sassoon Dock, cruise ship terminal and Ro-Ro services all other activities are not shipping related. Hospital botanical garden etc should not necessarily be on the coast. It would be better to have two more shipyards like Mazagon Dock. Expenditure is now for classes rather than masses. Rs 350 Cr for Mandwa R-Ro service is for those with cars. Even 10 trips cannot be sustained. Instead the investment should be on the road to Alibaug which can be used for 12 months. Mr Rohit Lahoti, Architect Comparing Mumbai with Miami is a mistake just like comparing Mumbai with Shanghai was. Housing is a prominent issue in Mumbai. There is also the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. Today there was no mention of housing or affordable housing. There was talk of design and development but not of relocation. Some portion of land must be set aside for housing. Mr Vakil mentioned that the new DCR has just been announced and even includes salt pans for housing. This requires a separate session to integrate PortLands with the city as mentioned earlier today. Mr Debi Goenka There is a 100 year old maritime museum at Nhava supported by the Wadia Shipbuilders. T.S Rehman includes marine ecology and was designed and set up by Dr Gorakshakar. It is worth a visit.

Arabian Sea New Public Promenades Mumbai is uniquely fortunate to be an island city. Yet Mumbaikars have very few public promenades, where we can enjoy the sea. The Port Lands re-development offers us a unique possibility to create several new public promenades that will give us all space to breathe, relax and dream.

New Public Promenades 102

From Vision and Action to Delivery : IMC APLI PortLands Conference May, 2018

These public promenades may not necessarily be long contiguous stretches but can and should become part of a larger network of pedestrian and bicycling trails. These promenades must be provided with adequate east west connectivity and linked to passenger water terminals.

East West Connectivity The connectivity of the Eastern Port Lands from the rest of the city is comparatively weak due to the presence of high walls and the suburban harbour rail line. It is critical that the MCGM 2014-2034 Master Development Plan incorporates a series of east west connecting roads, walkways, cycle tracks & parks that can integrate the Port Lands seamlessly with the central and western part of South Mumbai. APLI Mumbai’s vision plan has proposed some suggestions on desired east west connectivity in the adjacent map.

Mumbai is a city that lends itself perfectly to water transport. We propose constructing Passenger Water Transport (PWT) Terminals along the entire eastern waterfront. Of these PWT stops a few should act as major trans-harbour or coastal ferry terminals, providing connectivity to Navi Mumbai, JNPT, Uran, Alibagh, Goa, etc.

Vision for Port Lands Neighbourhoods We believe that the neighbourhoods of the Port Lands can add to the “Cultural Capital” as well as “Social Capital” of the entire Mumbai Region. These are the last remaining spaces that Mumbaikars can claim to create a more liveable city. We have identified the historical, cultural and ecological characteristics of 12 of these neighbourhoods and applied people-oriented urban planning principles to create distinct and aesthetic spaces with great utility for our city. We believe the New Nadkarni Park should be redeveloped as a mixed use residential area with the primary aim of rehabilitating Project Affected Persons. We envisage a rich and vibrant tourist & cultural district in the historical Sewri Fort area and an ecopark featuring a flamingo sanctuary and a mangrove conservation site at the edge of the Sewri mudflats. The area in Haji Bunder & Hay Bunder offers a unique possibility to create education and sports facilities that can provide the children of Mumbai some space to learn and excel. This area should become the hub of a new Port Lands university and innovation hub for Mumbai, focusing on creating a next generation economy. Cotton Green is proposed for the Global BRICS HQ.

Victoria Dock: Marina Elphinstone Estate Incubation Hub for Entrepreneurs

Masjid Bunder

At Lakdi Bunder we envisage a much needed vocational training hub. We believe that Darukhana should be transformed from a toxic ship breaking yard into a vibrant water sports facility.

Indira Dock: International Cruise Terminal Passenger Water Terminal Hub Strategic Dry Dock

Mumbai CST

Ferry Wharf and Bhaucha Dhakka should be repaired and renovated as a modern fishing jetty along with a coastal ferry passenger terminal. The heritage Princes Dock and Victoria Dock should be revived and converted into a ship repair facility and a marina respectively. Indira Dock should be a Passenger Water Terminal also. Elphinstone Estate should become the city’s new innovation cluster and should feature incubation spaces for Mumbai’s new generation entrepreneurs. The disastrous OCT Jetty should be re-oriented for productive cargo operations.

Sassoon Dock Seafood Processing Centre

N

Sassoon Docks need to be repaired and renovated to provide hygienic and state of the art facilities for sea food auctions, processing and export. Appropriate waste management solutions must also be implemented.

Annexure 1: Principles of Humane Design “First life, then spaces, then buildings - the other way round never works” - Jahn Gehl The following chapter highlights the principles of Urban Planning that the Mumbai Port Lands must adopt to ensure a humane inclusive development proposed by Studio POD as a part of the APLI team.

Integrated Mobility: Mumbai’s Port Lands are located near major public transport links including the Suburban Harbour Line, the Wadala – Chembur Monorail, and the proposed Metro corridors from Wadala to Thane and Colaba to SEEPZ. The Port Lands also lend themselves seamlessly to Passenger Water Transport. All Port Lands neighbourhoods are within a 10 min walking distance from a major public transport hub and are designed for Integrated mobility.

Human Scale Development Our proposal for the Port Lands ensures a human friendly environment for residents and visitors. The Vision Plan is humane in scale and allows equitable space for pedestrians, bicycles, public transit and private vehicles.

Employability & Entrepreneurship : Opening up Mumbai’s Port Lands provides a vast opportunity to boost the local economy. We need to replace the factories and warehouses of yester years with Innovation clusters and Incubation spaces. This vision plan lays out a road map to do so.

Social Infrastructure: Mumbai’s Port Lands will be proposed as a socially vibrant space not only for the residents but also for the visitors. An emphasis has been placed on providing Public amenities and open areas for recreation and relaxation for all ages.

Smart Infrastructure : Smart infrastructure needs to be made available for Wireless and Broadband telecom connectivity, Internet and Entertainment, Integrated transit modes, Clean energy, Water Supply, Sewage & Waste management, and Recycling.

Sustainable Living: The proposed re-development of Mumbai’s Port Lands encourages the users to make the right choices in terms of commuting, food choices, waste management and water and electricity usage.

Healthy City: The proposed redevelopment of Port Lands should aim to provide the city with much needed open spaces for a healthy and fit living environment. Access to the waterfront for relaxation and stress free lifestyle is also at the core of the proposed development.

Nature and Natural Resources : The proposed Port Lands re-development offers a unique opportunity to work with nature and give Mumbaikars the chance to connect with nature, enjoy the biodiversity of our city, and boost eco-tourism.
