History[edit]

On 23 January 2006, The Times of India reported that the State Government had decided to concretise, widen and remove slums from P D'Mello Road, as part of ongoing road improvements in Mumbai.[6]

The BMC began clearing slums in May 2007.[1] The road was widened and the footpath was made narrower in an effort to keep the shanties from being rebuilt. The total cost for the widening was estimated to be INR51 crore (US$8.3 million).[7]
