Sights to remember: the MG Road promenade

The city’s landscape will change over the next few years. And with the Metro coming up, there’s already a lot of chopping, cutting and re-alignment to make way for the train line.

I was on MG Road the other day, and noticed with some sadness, the barricades along the promenade. I wonder how that part will look in a few years to come. People rushing around to catch the train. But we can still hold on to the memories of the lovely green promenade it once was. I did read that it would be rebuilt, but those lovely trees – it’s going to be really a sad sight to see them all come down. They might be able to rebuild the promenade, but nothing will replace the trees.

A sight to remember. MG Road before the Metro. The overhanging branches of the beautiful tree, shading the promenade like an umbrella

    Will miss the promenade. TOI had a brilliant picture of it (take from the 13 floors up) I guess. Of all the cities I have been in,MG road had the best greeenery for an arterial road.

    Sadly that is going to be history.
