Noise from Metro work along Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ touches new high

Cuffe Parade may be prime real estate in south Mumbai, but for those living near the construction along the Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ line, the noise is shattering the area’s calm.

A report by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and National Environmental Engineering and Research Institute (NEERI) has found that digging, blasting and heavy vehicular movements are pushing noise levels beyond permissible limits at all times of day.
