India | High-speed train gets variance to pass through Thane Creek bird sanctuary, Sanjay Gandhi NP

New Delhi: The Modi government’s much-touted Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project, funded by a loan from the Japan government, has received a wildlife clearance to encroach on a flamingo sanctuary and the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai.


According to a report in The Hindu, a committee chaired by Union environment minister Harsh Vardhan cleared a proposal that diverts 3.2756 hectares of forest land from the Thane Creek Flamingo Wildlife Sanctuary, and 97.5189 hectares of land close to the protected forest area’s boundary.
