Transcript

  • 1. Where is this?
  • 2. Why was it chosen as a site? • Originally was a series of fishing villages. • Growth of a port -concentrated at end of the peninsula – access to sea on both sides. • British colonial admin developed the port, as It was the closest port of entry to the subcontinent for European travellers. • It was called the ‘Gateway to India’.
  • 3. Problems of the site • City developers struggled to keep pace with rapid growth caused by rural to urban migration.10,000s move in every year. • Developing at the end of a peninsula restricts growth & it is now desperately overcrowded. • The price of land in the CBD has rocketed, making it one of the most expensive in the world.
  • 4. Dharavi – ‘biggest slum in Asia’ • Home to 600,000 people. • Size 2km² • Cottage industries estimated to generate US$40mn each year. • Found just north of central Mumbai, growth restricted. • Lies at narrow part of peninsula & across routes that bring 100,000s of commuters into the city • Inevitable it will be redeveloped.
