According to a report in Financial Express, the proposal for the Versova beach makeover has been planned by local MLA Ameet Satam and Maharashtra Maritime Board (MMB). The report also states that the authorities are planning to construct a marine entertainment zone alongside the Versova beach – on the lines of Miami beach. The entertainment zone will cater to visitors with activities like water sports, beach events, beach cafes, beach sports and others.
The total estimated cost of the project is pegged at INR 20 Cr. and will be a collaborative effort of Satam, local residents and architect PK Das, said the report.
In July, DNA reported that the MMB planned a makeover of Versova beach by developing a sports arena with a beach cricket and football pitch, facilities for a wide range of water sports, seating arrangements and shacks for cafes and restaurants, among other features. The thrust of the project will also be on waste management, added the report.
As per MMD officials, the transformed Versova beach would be ready for public use by December this year.
