New Delhi, Dec 2 (TIWN) For the second time within two months, the Supreme Court has intervened to stop felling of trees for the Mumbai Metropolitan Regional Development Authority' (MMRD) Metro rail projects. On Monday, the apex court stayed, for two weeks, axing of trees on the Metro Line 4 (Wadala to Kasarvadali via Thane). Last month, it had ordered no tree be cut in the Aarey colony forest area for the Metro car shed.

Thane resident Rohit Joshi, through advocate Pooja Dhar, filed a plea challenging the Bombay High Court's November 25 order vacating the stay on the felling of trees for the Metro 4 line project to be constructed by the MMRDA. The High Court had vacated the stay passed by a different bench in October, observing that public projects cannot be stalled.
