Mumbai: The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has started putting up signboards at the Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) and Western and Eastern Express Highway.
It is part of a beautification drive to replace old signboards. The signboards display the new MMRDA logo.
As there is a need to replace present signage boards, the MMRDA decided to replace them with new signage boards.
To help travellers and visitors find their way, these new signage boards will do a branding of MMRDA.
These boards have been displayed with the new MMRDA logo. The colors of boards have been changed from white and green to yellow and black.
MMRDA has begun the work of putting new signage boards in the BKC area.
New signage boards can easily be seen at some part of BKC.
“We are putting 100 signage boards at BKC. There will be big gauntlet signage boards on the western express highways. In between that, there will be other signage boards for traffic instructions.
At present, we are not putting signage boards at Western Express Highway,” said an official from MMRDA.
The officer added that the expected cost of the work is nearly `90 lakh for the Western Express Highway. Almost the same amount will be spent for BKC.
The signage replacement work was under discussion since the MMRDA decided to change the signage boards.
The big shock for the MMRDA authority was when the signage boards on the Western and Eastern express highways were stolen by unidentified persons and found missing. MMRDA could not capture the thieves.
