Uddhav Thackeray was sworn in as the Cheif Minister of Maharashtra on 28th November and from that day onwards, there have been quite a few interesting developments that have taken place. He first put a stop on the Metro 3 car shed in Aarey (Bandra-Sweeps-Colaba). Shiv Sena had been very vocal against cutting of trees in this area for the construction there. 

Post this, they also announced that they will be reviewing the prestigious Bullet train project. The project right now is in the land acquisition stage and has been facing issues in Palgarh area. This is not at all. According to reports, there will be other projects that will now have to face the heat. Projects that are currently under the scanner are Mumbai-Nagpur Samridhi Corridor, that has a value of Rs 46,000 crore attached to it, the coastal road project ( which will connect South Mumbai to the western suburbs and will cost Rs 12,000 crore), the Versova-Bandra Sea Link (costing Rs 7,000 crore) and construction of the third bridge over Thane Creek (Rs 800 crore). It is being said that only projects which are 100 per cent complete will be paid for and the rest will be paid only after getting instructions from the government. 

Most of these projects are the ones that have been given a go-ahead by the Fadnavis government in the last six months.
