Hitendra Thakur Calls on Maha CM Eknath Shinde, Gets 25 Infra Projects for Vasai Taluka
After Bahujan Vikas Aghadi (BVA) President-MLA Hitendra Thakur’s demands to execute 25 projects in the Vasai Taluka to ensure inclusive infrastructure development, Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde directed relevant agencies to look into the matter and take suitable measures. Hitendra Thakur, along with a delegation, met the Maharashtra CM to implement the proposed projects.
Following positive talks, the CM gave directions to implementing agencies such as Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC), Maharashtra Maritime Board (MMB), and Maha Rail for initiation of the projects. Also present in the meeting were Nalasopara MLA Kshitij Thakur and Boisar MLA Rajesh Patil, Director General, CMO, Radheshyam Mopalwar, and Additional Secretary, CMO, Bhushan Gagrani.
“We have given the list of demands keeping in mind the upcoming monsoon season. All the other projects are to ensure citizens of the taluka can seamlessly commute from one end to the other. We would appreciate if the demands are executed at the earliest,” said Hitendra Thakur.
Kshitij Thakur thanked the CM for listening to the demands and prioritising the infrastructure projects. “These projects will facilitate seamless transport and motivate last-mile connectivity in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region,” he added.
The project of widening and deepening of the Navghar creek is imperative to avoid waterlogging and developing flood-like situation in the area, which also consists of industrial hub. The project will also pave way for ro-ro service which is proposed in Thane, Bhayandar and Naigaon.
Among other important projects that were given a go-ahead by CM included the connection of Manor-Wada-Asangaon areas to the Mumbai-Nashik Samruddhi Expressway, rail overbridges, east-west connecting bridges, and seeking financial assistance in building flyovers. As many as seven new road projects are proposed while 12 new flyovers, and four east-west connecting overbridges in the taluka will now come up to ease traffic woes of commuters.
