Floatel, Ferris Wheel for Mumbai soon

A world-class cruise ship terminal, a Ferris Wheel on the lines of the London Eye, a 500-room floatel and floating restaurants are some of the mega projects planned to augment infrastructure in Mumbai, Shipping, Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari said here on Thursday.

While the floatel will be anchored off the Raj Bhavan near Malabar Hill in south Mumbai, marinas and jetties to promote intra-city water transport will also be taken up.

Gadkari has set up a committee headed by Rani Jadhav, former chairperson of the Mumbai Port Trust, and comprising urban planners, landscape artists and transportation experts to suggest ways and means to utilise around 1,800 acres of land under the Trust for these projects.
