The Maharashtra Minister Aaditya Thackeray inaugurated the viewing deck. The Maharashtra government proposed the name of the viewing deck after Ramabai Ambedkar, wife of Dr BR Ambedkar.

“Inaugurated this deck in Dadar. It was a stormwater outfall, now converted to a beautiful viewing deck by BMC as we focus on increasing urban open spaces for citizens. Located near Chaityabhoomi, we have proposed to name it ‘Mata Ramabai Ambedkar Smruti viewing deck’,” Thackeray said in a tweet.

Visitor Timings

The viewing deck can hold around 40 people. It is 24 metres long and 20-metres wide. A report by  Indian Express says, the estimated cost of the project was around Rs 3 crore and the deck will be opened to the public at night as well.

Indian Express quoted Kiran Dighavkar, Assistant Municipal Commissioner of G-North ward, “Many visitors used to climb on the redundant outfall to take selfies and photos of the Bandra-Worli sea link. We decided to strengthen the drain outfall area and construct this deck as a tourist attraction."

The Mumbai civic body also posted a video of the deck on its official Twitter account, saying that the newly renovated viewing deck in Chaitya Bhoomi, Dadar, would provide a scenic experience for tourists and citizens.
