To unclog Mumbai’s Western Express Highway, Nesco events to get ‘case-by-case approval’

Three days after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) told the Bombay Exhibition Centre (Nesco), Goregaon not to hold any events on its premises from August 29, the civic body and Mumbai traffic police on Monday shifted their stand on the issue. Permissions for events at the Goregaon ground will now be granted on a case-to-case basis.

Municipal commissioner Ajoy Mehta said, “We have decided to grant permissions on an event basis.” BMC has asked the organisers of events to coordinate with the traffic police before each event to ensure that there are no traffic jams and residents are not bothered.
